Now comprising the full text of over 1500 titles, HEB is expanding to include most humanities disciplines and area studies. HEB is growing by over 300 titles a year.
Humanities E-Book Collection is a digital collection offered by the ACLS in collaboration with ten learned societies, nearly 80 contributing publishers, and librarians at the University of Michigan's Scholarly Publishing Office. The result is an online, fully searchable collection of high-quality books in the Humanities, recommended and reviewed by scholars and featuring unlimited multi-user access and free, downloadable MARC records. HEB is available 24/7 on- and off-campus through standard web browsers.
The HEB collection allows users to perform keyword and Boolean searches, search full text across all titles in the database, in selected titles, or in a single title, by author and title as well as by Library of Congress subject headings for highly accurate results. Users may also search important book reviews. Search engines allow readers to find text and graphics, and to perform complex string searches for names, dates, phrases, or concepts in great depth and context.
The HEB collection offers a user-friendly interface that features quick and easy Internet access, full-text designed for comfortable on-screen reading, hypertext links for efficient navigation among text, bibliographies, citations, endnotes, and appendices.
HEB titles appear exactly as in the original editions for ease of reference and citation. New XML titles are enhanced with hypertext links and search features, some with direct links to web-based digital archives of appropriate source materials so that the reader can access many of the original source materials used by the author; and some titles feature enhanced illustrations, graphs, charts, maps, and other visual materials, often in full color, as well as video, sound, and music in appropriate titles.
