Broadening access to books on Texas and Oklahoma

The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 146 books on the history of Texas and Oklahoma. The books were selected by the University of North Texas Press, the Oklahoma Historical Society, the Portal to Texas History, the Texas State Historical Association, and the UNT Libraries Scholarly Publishing Services.

This two-year project, led by the University of North Texas Libraries, will broaden access to 141 books selected by one of three publishers or by the UNT Libraries for their relevance to the history of Texas and Oklahoma. It will also broaden access to five humanities-related books to be selected once the grant starts. Those books not yet available online through the Gateway to Oklahoma History, Portal to Texas History, or UNT Digital Library websites will be digitized, with full-text searching, and added to the appropriate site. All books will be converted to EPUB and Kindle formats, made available to download with the digitized version online, and added to the UNT Library Catalog and to WorldCat. The project also includes the production of "print-ready" PDFs from the scans of many of the books to allow them to be made available for sale in print again using print-on-demand technology.
