     *   Open Access titles on the MUSE website can be used to assist libraries in evaluating the functionality of books on Project MUSE. Find the open access titles here <https://about.muse.jhu.edu/muse/open-access-overview/>
  *   Publishers select books eligible for single title sale on MUSE and may change this option at any time.
  *   Over 42,400 titles, around 60% of all titles at MUSE, are eligible for EBA. A snapshot of the current content is attached to this email.

  *   Usage statistics will be provided on request for each participating library's review and evaluation.



Selection



  *   At the end of the program, libraries select the titles they wish to acquire. The number of titles a library is allowed to select is based on the amount contributed at the beginning of the program.
  *   Each library will have continuing access to all of the titles it selects.



Funding Commitment



LYRASIS total group funding commitment goal: $20,000 - FUNDING GOAL MET!
