SBL Press

International Cooperation Initiative
The Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), through its International Cooperation Initiative, has established the means by which free electronic access to selected SBL publications is provided to scholars and students in under-resourced countries. Visitors to the SBL Web site are identified by their IP addresses and if they are from any country whose Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita is substantially lower than the average of the GDP per capita of the USA and European Union, book selections are displayed as PDF files that can be downloaded at no charge. Additional books are posted monthly to the site.

Review of Biblical Literature (RBL)
RBL presents reviews of books in biblical studies and related fields. Appearing in digital form, RBL includes reviews of various topical studies, multi-author volumes, reference works, commentaries, dictionaries, bible translations, software, and other resources for the classroom and research. Multiple and contrasting reviews are often presented. The material reviewed and the reviewers come from varied academic, social, and religious perspectives. RBL provides a forum for international scholarly exchange and cutting edge innovations by producing reviews of the most recent titles in biblical studies using the technology of the internet.

Texas A&M University Press

The Carolyn & Ernest Fay Lecture and Book Series in Analytical Psychology
Each year an eminent Jungian, selected from around the world, is invited to College Station for three days of concentrated presentations that are subsequently issued as a new book in the Fay series, edited by Dr. David Rosen (holder of the McMillan Professorship in Analytical Psychology) and published by Texas A&M University Press. Generously funded by the Houston philanthropist Carolyn Grant Fay and her late husband, Ernest Bel Fay, for the past two decades these lectures and books have enhanced the intellectual life of Texas A&M and extended Jungian insights and understanding throughout the world. To date, nearly two dozen books have been released. The Press also publishes full-text, open-access, digital editions of each of these volumes. Visit the Influence Map of the series.

Utah State University Press

Computers and Composition Digital Press
The goal of this imprint is to honor the traditional academic values of rigorous peer review and intellectual excellence, but also to combine such work with a commitment to innovative digital scholarship and expression. The imprint is particularly interested in digital projects that cannot be printed on paper, but that have the same intellectual heft as a book.

University of Virginia Press

Rotunda
The Electronic Imprint of the University of Virginia Press has established Rotunda, a series of collections of digital scholarship combining the originality, intellectual rigor, and scholarly value of traditional peer-reviewed university press publishing with thoughtful technological innovation designed for scholars and students. Rotunda is made possible by generous grants from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the President's Office of the University of Virginia.

The American Founding Era
Rotunda's American Founding Era collection includes the Dolley Madison Digital Edition, and digitized editions of the multi-volume Papers of George Washington, the Adams Papers, the Papers of Thomas Jefferson, and the Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Future publications include digitized editions of the papers of James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson, John Jay, and John Marshall.

Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture
Rotunda also offers the Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture collection, including works on Herman Melville, Matthew Arnold, and William Wells Brown, author of the first African-American novel, Clotel. In addition to "born-digital" publications, both collections will include newly digitized critical and documentary editions originally published by university presses and scholarly societies.

American Century
The American Century Collection brings together primary-source material by and about the most notable figures from the twentieth century and presents them in a multimedia-enhanced, fully searchable XML environment.

Wesleyan University Press

Accelerated Motion
A series of dynamic and interactive educational materials aimed at fostering a multidisciplinary understanding of how movement ideas are enacted in various aspects of American culture.

University of Wisconsin Press

Fishes of Wisconsin
This magnificent, encyclopedic reference to 157 fish species—which are found not only in Wisconsin but also in much of the Great Lakes region and Mississippi River watershed—has been a model for all other such works. The Ecology and Natural Resources Collection brings together, in digital form, two categories of primary and secondary publications: writings about research in ecology and natural resources conducted by University of Wisconsin faculty and staff; and unique or valuable titles in these fields held by the University of Wisconsin Libraries.

Print Culture in America
The series fosters research and writing on the mediating role that print has played in American culture since 1876. Its scope encompasses studies of newspapers, books of all kinds, periodicals, advertising, and ephemera. Special attention is given to groups whose gender, race, class, creed, occupation, ethnicity, or sexual orientation (among other factors) have historically placed them on the periphery of power but who have used print sources as one of the few means of expression available to them.

The History of the Crusades
The six volumes of A History of the Crusades will stand as the definitive history of the Crusades, spanning five centuries, encompassing Jewish, Moslem, and Christian perspectives, and containing a wealth of information and analysis of the history, politics, economics, and culture of the medieval world. Each of the six volumes is available in its entirety.

Mellon Foundation, the Stalin Digital Archive contains over 28,000 documents of Stalin's personal papers, from letters to books from his library—most never seen outside of Russia.
