Fall offer: 2020 Duke University Press e-Duke Books Scholarly Collections
Duke University Press is dedicated to sharing the ideas of bold, progressive thinkers and to supporting emerging fields of scholarship. They believe that knowledge drives change and that collaborations that nurture equality and diversity help shape the future of scholarly disciplines. Their works foreground underrepresented voices, offering the perspectives of women, the LGBTQ community, indigenous communities, and people of color.

Over a decade ago, Duke University Press was one of the first university presses to experiment with independent e-resource packages, and they continue to be a leader in this realm with the launch of their e-book subject collections and pick-and-choose e-book model. The e-resource landscape has evolved rapidly, and Duke University Press is committed to working with libraries to build a flexible and innovative future.

In light of this, LYRASIS is pleased to announce the Fall Offer for 2020 e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection and Subject Collections from Duke University Press.

The collection includes term access to 2,500 backlist titles during 2019 as well as perpetual access to at least 120 new e-books published by Duke University Press throughout 2020.
