Univ. of Minnesota Press Gets Interactive with Scholarly Books
THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA PRESS ANNOUNCED earlier this week that it, with the GC Digital Scholarship Lab at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, has been awarded a $732,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to launch the Manifold Scholarship digital initiative. The funding will allow UMP and and CUNY’s digital humanities center to continue their partnership in producing UMP’s scholarly books in digital formats.
In a release, UMP stated that the funds will be used to “define and create the next phase of scholarly publishing: monographs that open the boundaries of separate formats like ‘print’ and ‘e-book.” The Manifold Scholarship funds will allow UMP to produce interactive digital editions of titles it is publishing in print. The e-books will be made available on an open-source platform. >>READ MORE
