North American Public Libraries

MUSE is a great addition to any size public library's selection of research tools, and can enrich your collection with a minimum of effort and expense. Here are a few of the ways MUSE can be invaluable to public libraries, and the lifelong learners whom they serve: everyone from continuing education and high school students, to history hobbyists and book clubs.

  • Peer-reviewed humanities and social science journals in HTML and PDF formats
  • 100% full-text content in a wide variety of subjects, including English and American
  • literature, classics, religion, film, performing arts, American history, cultural studies,
  • political science and economics
  • Scholarly articles, reviews, poetry, fiction, and drama
  • Unlimited access from any computer on the library network and optional remote access
  • Online content that links seamlessly from search tools such as Google and Google Scholar
  • Significant savings over equivalent single title subscriptions

Project MUSE offers three collections of high quality full-text journals to public libraries in the US and Canada: Premium Collection, Standard Collection and Basic College Collection.

Pricing for public libraries is based on the size of the population served by a library or library system. Libraries may choose to subscribe at a price that allows remote access for library users, or they may subscribe at a lower price that does not allow remote access for library users.

The Project MUSE subscription term is the calendar year January 1-December 31. All subscriptions are entered to expire on December 31; there are no rolling subscription terms. Rates for orders placed after the first of the year will be pro-rated to the number of months remaining in the current term. Please ensure you reference the price table for the correct subscription year. Please direct any questions regarding MUSE prices to our Customer Support.
