June 23, 2011
We're pleased to announce that this September University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) will launch and include content from the American University in Cairo Press, the University Press of Florida, Fordham University Press, Hong Kong University Press, the University Press of Kentucky, and Oxford University Press.
“University Press of Florida is delighted to be among the first presses to join University Press Scholarship Online. In today's constantly changing environment, we know how important it is to work hand-in-glove with academic libraries to make the most up-to-date and rigorously vetted content available to as wide an audience as possible. Through UPSO and its enhanced searchability functions, we anticipate both an increased readership—especially of portions of books—and a resulting improvement in future scholarship,” says Dennis Lloyd, Associate Director/Director of Sales and Marketing, University Press of Florida.
UPSO brings together the best of scholarly publishing from around the world with the same cutting-edge search and discovery functionality that has marked the success of Oxford Scholarship Online to a greatly expanded subject base. “Fordham University Press is delighted to be able to offer libraries electronic access to its books through Oxford's UPSO service. We are fortunate to be associated with such a well-respected and proven platform that offers our content in XML as part of a dynamic search database. I have been impressed with the knowledge of the entire Oxford team from the technological whizzes doing the back-end preparation to the dedicated sales reps selling to libraries. I look forward to continued success,” says Fredric Nachbaur, Director, Fordham University Press.
“The University Press of Kentucky is thrilled about its inclusion as part of the University Press Scholarship Online program. As one of the leaders in the academic community, Oxford is known for being one of the top providers of electronic and print content. With XML tagging and dynamic searchable information, UPSO is clearly a paragon of the digital publishing age,” says John P. Hussey, Director of Marketing & Sales, University Press of Kentucky.
