*Additional titles, new journal collections, a revised pricing model,
and enhanced outreach initiatives – Join us to find out all that’s new
with MUSE for 2005!*

A few seats are still available for the Project MUSE User Group
breakfast on Saturday, January 15, at the American Library
Association’s Midwinter Meeting in Boston. This past year has been one
of growth and change for MUSE, and we are excited to share all the
latest news for 2005. Prospective as well as current Muse subscribers
are encouraged to attend.

MUSE continues to expand our offerings of quality full-text journals in
the humanities and social sciences. Along with 26 new titles and 7 new
publisher participants confirmed for 2005, we are also pleased to
introduce some new journal collection options developed specifically
for research and undergraduate libraries. With extensive input from
librarians, MUSE also recently announced a new pricing model designed
to provide greater fairness, flexibility, and predictability for
subscribers, and to open up new opportunities for smaller colleges and
universities, special libraries, and international libraries to benefit
from the wealth of resources MUSE offers.

We’ll also be discussing new outreach initiatives and the many
resources available to help librarians promote and manage their MUSE
subscriptions, demonstrating some new features developed to enhance
usability of Muse, and updating you on our partnerships and linking
arrangements with third party services. Most importantly, we'll be
available to answer your questions about Project MUSE.
