Hello everyone. I hope this email finds you all safe and healthy as the fall semester progresses. Today we want to share with you two new things from the University of Michigan Press: Dialogues in Democracy and the 2020 Featured Fall Offer for the University of Michigan Press Ebook Collection.

While LYRASIS partners with a variety of scholarly publishing programs to help member institutions' dollars go further, we encourage prioritizing investing in mission-aligned, scholarly publishing programs, like the University of Michigan Press. LYRASIS is committed to serving our members where they are, all the while trying to inspire and empower our members to invest in infrastructure that supports sustainable publishing of scholarly content.


University of Michigan Press Special Programs: Dialogues in Democracy - Core titles in politics and public policy now "free-to-read"

The University of Michigan Press is pleased to announce the launch of "Dialogues in Democracy," a collection of at least 25 free-to-read books contextualized by multimedia resources including author podcasts and videos. Ideal for students and the engaged voter alike, these resources illustrate the core tensions in American political culture-tensions that erupt every four years during the presidential election and are particularly apparent during these unusual times.

In fall 2020, University of Michigan students, faculty, and staff will join together in a university-wide educational initiative<https://speakactvote.umich.edu/> to explore what it means to a member of a democratic society. The free titles featured in "Dialogues in Democracy" allow the public to join this "theme semester" from anywhere in the world, with a curated selection from the Press's world-renowned political science list <https://www.publishing.umich.edu/features/reading-the-2020-presidential-election> enriched by interviews with the leading scholars who work with the Press.
