The Online Collection
Developed By Scholars

The Gutenberg-e prize is a collaborative effort between Columbia University Press and the American Historical Association, committed to exploring and promoting the electronic publication of scholarly writing. Support for the project was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Gutenberg-e’s prize-winning books represent distinguished and innovative scholarship that is published initially in digital format. The titles have undergone a rigorous review by distinguished historians brought together by the AHA and produced through a close collaboration among the authors, Columbia University Press and the Columbia University Libraries.
