New Partnership to Digitize Humanities Books

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are teaming up to make more humanities books available to everyone. “Under the new Humanities Open Book program, NEH and Mellon are awarding grants totaling roughly $774,000 to publishers to identify great humanities books, secure all appropriate rights, and make them available for free, forever, under a Creative Commons license.”
