Mellon Foundation. As many as 15, titles front and backlist can be searched alongside the journals currently available on Project MUSE.

A mobile-optimized site is due to be released in the coming months. Forecasting the future Last year was a record-setting year for the establishment of university press ebook consortia.
These groups will provide enormous benefits for university presses, libraries, and the future of the academic monograph. End users will benefit from greater discoverability of content and a varied selection of formats. What about the future? Once workflows are in place and new revenue streams established, university presses can focus on a future of enhanced ebooks, those with multimedia, embedded links, and an array of nontext features.
Luther described a future where authors can create the enhanced content during the manuscript writing process.
For instance, an author could conduct audio interviews and take photographs of people, places, and events during the writing process and then embed these objects into the text. The project, which lasted 14 months, had the ambitious goal to create enhanced ebooks from the authors of 87 different titles. I would like to see archiving, digitizing, and publishing happen in tandem. For example, when an author has conducted oral-history interviews and consulted archival documents during research for a book, the interviews might be ingested into an archive and made available digitally, and the archival collections that were consulted might be digitized, at a library.
Simultaneously, the book would be edited and produced at the publishing house. For now, we are finally moving beyond the either-or, print-versus-electronic rhetoric that has governed much of the debate in recent years. Viable business models are starting to emerge alongside new revenue streams, and libraries will have an assortment of downloading options for university press ebooks.
