Description: 

The e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection provides access to 2,400 e-books in humanities and social sciences. The collection includes term access to 2,300 backlist titles during 2018 as well as perpetual access to at least 100 new e-books published by Duke University Press throughout the year.

Current customers have term access to approximately 1,250 of the titles published before 2008. To purchase perpetual access to this set of e-books, libraries can order the e-Duke Books Archive. The collections for 2008 through 2017 are each available for outright purchase at the 2018 collection price.

Individual titles in electronic format are available from select vendors, including ProQuest, EBSCO, and Dawson Books.

The collections are hosted by HighWire Press until the end of 2017. News about platform change for 2018: content will be changing platforms from HighWire Press to Silverchair Information Systems at the end of the year. We will soon have a check-list of items for our librarian partners to complete to ensure a smooth transition, but for now, we are urging everyone to please sign up for our Platform Migration email list. Libraries can visit the Platform Migration page on our site to sign up and find more information.
