ACLS Humanities E-Book Collection
SAM members can also subscribe to the digital collection of over 3,700 titles in the ACLS Humanities E-Book collection. Titles have been selected and peer reviewed by ACLS constituent learned societies for their continued value in teaching and researching, and approximately 500 are being added each year. The collection includes both in- and out-of-print titles ranging from the 1880s to the current year. Titles link to publishers' websites and to online reviews in JSTOR, Project MUSE, and other sites.
Individual subscriptions are ideal for those whose school might not yet have an institutional subscription to HEB or for individual members who might not be affiliated with a subscribing institution. Individual subscriptions are USD $40.00 for a twelve-month, renewable, subscription. $15 of your subscription will come back directly to the Society for American Music and the balance will help sustain HEB as a resource for the entire scholarly community.
