ACLS Humanities E-Book


ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) is an online collection of approximately 4,000 books of high quality in the humanities, including digitized versions of already-published titles and a select list of new ("born digital") titles. These titles are offered by the ACLS in collaboration with 30 learned societies, over 100 contributing publishers, and the MPublishing Division of the University of Michigan Library. The result is a collection of works of major importance, recommended and reviewed by scholars, that remain vital and are frequently cited in the literature. Among the works are books authored by ACLS awardees.

HEB is accessible through institutional and individual subscriptions.  The collection is also now available to individuals through their membership in any one of the ACLS member societies for a low annual fee.
