March 1 2018 - Preview MUSE's New Platform Design!
Project MUSE invites you to preview our newly redesigned platform by visiting our beta site. The beta is a work in progress and will run in parallel with our current site leading up to the formal release of the new site in mid-2018.
Among the exciting new features available in this preview are:
- * Content footnotes and references presented "in-line" with the associated text in articles and chapters
- * Additional search facets for book series and thematic journal issues
- * Personalized "My MUSE" accounts allowing users to save searches and create a custom library of MUSE materials
- * Sample open access monographs, in browser-native HTML5, supporting richer linking and conversations around the content
Upon release of the new platform, over 300 additional OA (open access) monographs in HTML5 will be available. All of the OA books will be fully supported with MARC records, KBART files, and metadata distribution and linking, and will be preserved with support from PORTICO and LOCKSS.
We welcome your comments and suggestions on the beta site prior to the release of the new site in mid-2018.
