New Digital Editions from the University of Chicago Press

ade_Wild.JPGThe University of Chicago Press is pleased to announce that beginning this month, in partnership with BiblioVault, the digital repository run by Chicago Distribution Services for scholarly presses, we now offer over 700 titles available for direct download through our Web site. No more lugging twenty pounds of books across campus, no more waiting for recalls and interlibrary loans, no more papercuts; just load Adobe’s Digital Editions software on your computer or handheld device and start downloading!
The Press currently offers three e-book licensing options: Perpetual ownership at list price, 180-day ownership for about 50% off, and 30-day ownership for just $5.00.
According to Patti O’Shea, executive director of information systems at Chicago, “the limited-time plans will allow students who only need a book for a semester-long course, or for a research paper they’re working on, to get the book immediately and own it for only as long as they need it.”
If you’d like to test how it works go ahead and download a sample chapter from Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, or for more information see our info page and press release for Chicago Digital Editions.
