Duke books and journals now on the same platform
We are pleased to announce the launch of read.dukeupress.edu, our new website for e-books. Hosted by HighWire Press, the new site is the home of the e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection, formerly hosted on ebrary.
Journals continue to be found at dukejournals.org. However, we are already working to integrate book and journal content for more seamless research: any user searching or browsing read.dukeupress.edu will find journal articles as well as book chapters, improving discovery for your library’s journal holdings. (22/1/14)
This page is primarily for the information of CAUL/CEIRC members who wish to subscribe to this publisher's products and/or services. It provides information about offers to CAUL and CAUL-specific pricing, and links to relevant pages on the publisher's own web site. For other information, please go directly to Duke University Press.
