About Project MUSE Ebooks 

Memorial Library is a subscriber to the Project MUSE Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) collection through our membership in LYRASIS. The LYRASIS subscription includes all eligible titles, currently over 51,000 scholarly books in a wide range of subjects within the humanities and social sciences. As long as we maintain a current subscription, the Berry community has full online access to the Project MUSE collection. At the end of each year we also select a certain number of titles for perpetual access - even if we discontinue our subscription, these titles are ours forever.  

Project MUSE books include unlimited simultaneous usage, downloading and printing of DRM-free PDF chapters.

All books are fully integrated with Project MUSE's scholarly journal content (Memorial Library subscribes to all Project MUSE journals), as well as being discoverable via WorldCat Discovery, Google Scholar, and other research tools.
