ABOUT ACLS Humanities E-Book
ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) is an online collection of nearly 4,700 books of high
quality in the humanities, accessible through institutional and individual subscription.
These titles are offered by ACLS (American Council of Learned Societies) in collaboration
with 31 learned societies, over 100 contributing publishers, and the Michigan Publishing
Division of the University of Michigan Library. The result is an online, fully searchable
collection of works of major importance that have been recommended and reviewed
by scholars. The collection features unlimited multi-user access and free, downloadable
MARC records. HEB is available 24/7 on- and off-campus through standard web
browsers.
HEB adds hundreds of books annually to the collection. The collection also includes
around a hundred carefully selected XML titles that use new media to communicate the
results of scholarship. Titles include monographs, critical studies, volumes of essays and
some primary sources with critical annotation.
To guarantee the scope and quality of this interdisciplinary collection, 31 of ACLS’s 73
constituent learned societies currently participate in developing lists of recommended titles.
We also receive title recommendations from individual scholars and authors of frontlist
titles included in the collection, which also features a considerable number of prize-winning
scholarly works.
HEB was originally funded as the ACLS History E-Book Project in June 1999 by a
$3-million, five-year grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional
funding from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation. Now in its second phase, HEB
achieved self-sustainability in the spring of 2005 and became ACLS Humanities E-Book in
January 2007.

Annual subscription rates for HEB
2016
HEB has established our classification system on the model used by JSTOR, aimed at insuring that we apply
a consistent and fair standard for all libraries. Our pricing categories are based first on the Carnegie
Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, 2000 edition. The second basis for pricing is full-time
enrollment (FTE). For institutions of higher education, the FTE is the enrollment of full-time students plus
the full-time equivalent of part-time students. In the absence of an equivalent reported by an institution, the
FTE is estimated by adding one‐third of part-time enrollment to full-time enrollment.
Very Large Institutions $3,885 annual/$19,425 for a 5-year extended option
• All institutions classified by Carnegie as Doctoral/Research Universities - Extensive
Large Institutions $2,800 annual/$14,000 for a 5-year extended option
• All institutions classified by Carnegie as Doctoral/Research Universities - Intensive
• Public library systems serving a population of over 1 million
