HEB Announces Individual Subscription Offer

HEB is now please to make individual subscriptions available through standing membership in any of the 70 ACLS constituent societies.

The subscription offers unlimited access to 2,200 cross-searchable, full-text titles across the humanities and related social sciences. Titles have been selected and peer reviewed by ACLS constituent learned societies for their continued value in teaching and research, and approximately 500 titles are being added each year.

The collection includes both in-and out-of print titles ranging from the 1880s through the present. Titles link to publishers' websites and to online reviews in JSTOR, Project MUSE, and other sites. Individual subscriptions are USD $35.00 for a twelve-month subscription.

Individual subscriptions are ideal for those whose schools might not yet have an institutional subscription to HEB or for individual members of a learned society who might not be affiliated with a subscribing institution.

For more information on individual subscription to Humanities E-Book, please visit the Individual Subscription page and review the Terms. To make a purchase online via our secure server, please visit Online Purchase.
