Humanities Open Book Program-Syracuse University Press

Digitization and creation of freely accessible ebooks for 23 titles originally published by Syracuse University Press in Irish studies and New York State regional studies.

In preparing to celebrate its 75th anniversary, Syracuse University Press seeks support through the joint NEH-Mellon Humanities Open Book program to digitize and make openly accessible electronic versions of approximately 23 important out-of-print humanities books from select areas of its editorial program. We will use this funding to research the books’ provenance and current rights status; to digitize and convert them to EPUB, Mobi, XML, and PDF formats; and to work with Syracuse University Libraries and Project MUSE, among other partners, to publicize and make them readily discoverable and available on any e-reading device to the general public and to a global community of students and scholars.
