Individual Access to The American Council of Learned Societies Humanities E-Books

Having recently discussed access to digital resources by scholars who are unaffiliated with a subscribing/licensing institution with respect to members of the the Egypt Exploration Society (EES) and the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR), I received the following notification on Monday from the American Council of Learned Societies Humanities E-Books Project:
HEB is now pleased to make individual subscriptions available through standing membership in any of the 70 ACLS constituent societies.

The subscription offers unlimited access to 2,200 cross-searchable, full-text titles across the humanities and related social sciences. 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 through 2009. Titles link to publishers websites and to online reviews in JSTOR, Project MUSE, and other sites. Individual subscriptions are USD $35.00 for a twelve-month subscription.

Individual subscriptions are ideal for those whose school might not yet have an institutional subscription to HEB or for individual members of a learned society who might not be affiliated with a subscribing institution.

Please see the links below for more information on individual subscriptions.
