Pricing is available and orders may now be placed for the 2022 frontlist collections of books on Project MUSE. The annual frontlist collections offer libraries the earliest access to newly-published books from the more than 200 university press and related scholarly publishers who participate in MUSE book collections. With the advance purchase of one or more of the 2022 frontlist collections, a library gains access to new titles in the collection(s) immediately upon their release on the MUSE platform, and provides its users with the latest scholarship in a DRM-free, easy to use format. With unlimited simultaneous usage, downloading, and printing, books on MUSE are ideal for both research and classroom needs.

In addition to the annual frontlist collections, Project MUSE recently introduced Books Custom Collections, which allow libraries to fully-customize their selection from the more than 70,000 titles currently available on the platform. A custom collection may be designed by filtering the full catalog of titles on criteria such as subject, publisher, and publication date, or more closely curated a by making individual title selections. Easily add electronic access for existing print holdings, instantly gain resources to support a new program/major, or quickly address course needs with a collection tailored to instructor requests.

• Access to free MARC records, KBART, and title list downloads customized to the library’s holdings
