Humanities E-Book is happy to introduce our first video in our new series, “Industry Insights.” This series will highlight exciting innovations in the professional and scholarly industry.
For our first episode, HEB’s Marketing & Production Manager Chris Plattsmier sits down with Alexandra Provo. Ms. Provo is currently the Project Manager of the Enhanced Networked Monographs (ENM) project—an exciting collaboration between NYU Press and NYU Libraries’ Digital Library Technology Services department.
The ENM Project began in 2015 from an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant. The project uses NYU Press’s 110 Open Access Books to new build new ways of discovering content within large bodies of works through semantic tagging, topic maps, and more. As more and more professional and scholarly publishing evolves digitally, this project shows the exciting opportunities, for users and publishers alike, that come with it. You can find out more about the project here.
