Open Access Books at JSTOR

JSTOR, one of the loves of our collective lives here at the library, is once again doing something neat.

From their announcement:

“We are pleased to announce a new program to make Open Access monographs available on the JSTOR platform. An initial set of titles is available from four outstanding publishers: University of California Press, University of Michigan Press, UCL Press, and Cornell University Press. We expect to add several hundred more Open Access titles over the next year […]

The ebooks, which reflect JSTOR’s high standards for quality content, are freely available for anyone in the world to use. Each ebook carries one of six Creative Commons licenses determined by the publisher. The titles are easy to use, with no DRM restrictions and no limits on chapter PDF downloads or printing. Users will not need to register or log in to JSTOR.”

The first set of books includes some amazing titles like:

“Bread and Circuses: Theories of Mass Culture as Social Decay”

“Dreams for Dead Bodies: Blackness, Labor, and the Corpus of American Detective Fiction”

“Imperfect Creatures: Vermin, Literature, and the Sciences of Life, 1600-1740”

“The Resonance of Unseen Things: Poetics, Power, Captivity, and UFOs in the American Uncanny”

and so many more. Check them out here!
