26 University Presses Now Partner with Bookshare

A lot has happened over the year with university press partnerships. With three new partnerships in the last few weeks, I realized it was time to post an update. These three new university presses signing agreements to contribute digital files with world rights to Bookshare bring the total number of university press partners to twenty-six. The new partners are:

  • Edinburgh University Press.  As the imprimatur of one of Britain’s oldest and most distinguished centers of learning, they publish books of the highest academic standards. Their main subject areas are American Studies, Classics & Ancient History, Film & Media Studies, History, Islamic & Middle Eastern Studies, and Language & Linguistics.
  • Fordham University Press, founded in 1907 and based in Bronx, New York.  Fordham publish 60 to 70 books a year and has a backlist of a thousand titles.  It publishes primarily in the humanities and the social sciences, with an emphasis on the fields of anthropology, philosophy, theology, history, classics, communications, economics, sociology, business, political science, and law, as well as literature and the fine arts. Additionally, the Press publishes books focusing on the metropolitan New York region and books of interest to the general public.  It publishes three journals including Dante Studies and Joyce Studies.
  • The University of Nebraska Press, founded in 1941 and based in Lincoln, Nebraska, is the second-largest state university press in the United States behind the University of California Press and is among the ten largest university presses in the country. The press publishes approximately 100 titles annually and has more than 2,500 titles in print. It publishers books and journals with a focus on American history, the American West, and Native American studies.  The press is also one of the leading translators of French literature in the U.S. and has an extensive translation program that focuses primarily on French, German, and Spanish writers. The Los Angeles Times  named the Press one of only three publishing companies in America “to reliably, season after season, produce significant translations.”  The Press is also the publisher of the scholarly editions of the works of Willa Cather, including classics My Antonia  and O Pioneers! This year the Press published Empires, Nations, and Families, A History of the North American West, 1800-1860 by Anne F. Hyde which won this year’s Bancroft Prize and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist this Spring.
