It has a lot of information -just like biology browser. I think it is fantastic. For library interest, I think Powerpoint seminars search would be ideal and there is also daily research cartoons. :-) -Meredith (2)------------------ Date: Tue, 9 Sep 2008 13:43:49 -0500 From: Rich Connelly <RConnelly@press.uchicago.edu> Subject: Univ of Chicago Press Journals Division Announces 2009 Subscription Rates Subject: University of Chicago Press Journals 2009 subscription rates now available **With apologies for cross-posting** For Immediate Release: September 9, 2008 Contact: email@example.com or (773) 753-3347, U.S. and Canada toll-free (877) 705-1878 The University of Chicago Press has released 2009 journal subscription rates for both individual and institutional subscribers. For a complete list of journals published by the University of Chicago Press please visit the University of Chicago Press Journals website, www.journals.uchicago.edu. The complete University of Chicago Press Journals Division 2009 rate sheet for institutions and individuals is available for download in our online catalog: http://www.journals.uchicago.edu/2009_journals_catalog.pdf. Important Information about our Program for 2009 *The University of Chicago Press offers three types of institutional subscriptions: Print + Electronic, Electronic-only, and Print-only. Print + Electronic subscriptions are available for all of our journals. Electronic-only and Print-only subscriptions are available for most, but not all, of our journals. Please check the rate list for details. *We have renamed our institutional electronic subscription products in order to simplify and more clearly represent product features and access levels. The former Enterprise-Wide License is now called Unlimited Access, and Single-concurrency is now called Basic Access. Subscribers at either access level receive access to all available issues on the University of Chicago website, and COUNTER compliant usage reports. Pricing for Unlimited Access subscriptions is tiered and allows for an unlimited number of simultaneous users, perpetual access for lapsed subscriptions, and classroom & library reserve use. *There is no geographic restriction on access for a given institution. Thus we have no "SITE" licenses. No signed license is needed either for most subscribers but we will prepare one if your institution so requires. *We are pleased to announce the addition of two existing titles to our portfolio of journals in 2009: Renaissance Quarterly (RQ) is the leading American journal of Renaissance studies, encouraging connections between different scholarly approaches to bring together material spanning the period from 1300 to 1650 in Western history. The official journal of the Renaissance Society of America, RQ presents twelve to sixteen articles and over four hundred reviews per year, engaging such disciplines as: Comparative literature, Emblems, English literature, French literature, Germanic literature, Hebraica, Hispanic literature, History, History of art and architecture, History of classical tradition, History of legal and political thought, History of religion, History of medicine and science, History of the book, Paleography and manuscript tradition, Humanism, Italian literature, Music, Neo-Latin literature, Performing arts and theater, Philosophy, Rhetoric, and Women and gender studies. Publication by the University of Chicago Press begins with Volume 62 Number 1, March 2009. Schools: Studies in Education fills a long standing void in the world of educational publications, providing a forum to promote the scholarship and career growth of school educators. It accomplishes this by giving school teachers and others a rare space to explore, through stories and their related commentaries, the more dynamic and complex experiences of school life in ways that convey how human relationships, thoughts, and emotions shape the meaning of educational experience in schools. This peer-reviewed journal publishes scholarly articles based on theory and research, interpretive reflective essays, brief informal meditations and stories, and educationally relevant reviews of books, films, art exhibitions and musical performances. In addition, each issue features a reprint of an intriguing passage from a long-ago, previously written or published insight or reflection on education in schools. Founded in 1891, the University of Chicago Press is the largest American university press. Chicago Journals publishes periodicals and serials in a wide range of disciplines, including several journals that were the first scholarly publications in their respective fields. Online since 1995, Chicago Journals has also been a pioneer in electronic publishing, delivering original, peer-reviewed research from international scholars to a worldwide audience.

This collection provides online access to at least 100 new scholarly books published by Duke University Press in the humanities and social sciences in a calendar year. By purchasing the current year's titles in the collection, libraries also receive access to over 900 Duke University Press backlist books now available in electronic form. The e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection is hosted on the ebrary® platform, which allows an unlimited number of simultaneous users at a subscribing institution to access content and use ebrary's searching, navigating, archiving, and other research tools. The content of the collection is full-text searchable, like that of other titles to which the institution has access via ebrary. Additionally, Duke University Press has partnered with Duke University's Perkins/Bostock Library to provide enhanced MARC records, including chapter-level metadata. With the guidance of project consultant and library market specialist October Ivins, a pilot project was launched in January 2008, allowing a select group of nineteen partner libraries to provide feedback concerning such matters as access, pricing, the site license, and vendor preferences. Ivins comments, "Collaborating with staff at Duke University Press and Libraries, ebrary, and BiblioVault, as well as with our pilot partner libraries and book vendors, has been a process filled with new insights that have improved our product and business model. Collectively, I feel that we have fulfilled Duke University Press director Steve Cohn's vision of creating a library-friendly e-book collection that other university presses and small publishers may use as a model." Norm Medeiros, associate librarian of Haverford College, states, "Haverford, with its partners Bryn Mawr and Swarthmore Colleges, entered into the pilot through the PALINET consortium in order to provide faculty and students with a collection of high-quality electronic books. The integration of the e-Duke books into our ebrary channel affords easy access to the collection. Usage has been strong, indicating that the titles with their digital advantages are serving our users well." The business model of the e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection builds on that of the e-Duke Journals Scholarly Collection, which also evolved with much collaboration and feedback from the library community. The e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection features a similar library-friendly tiered pricing structure based on Carnegie classifications and an inexpensive print add-on option.
