Great article in the Chronicle of Higher Education today about 4 options UPs have for creating eBook content.  The choices include:  JSTOR, Project MUSE, Oxford University Press, and a consortium led by several midsize presses.

From the COHE article, written by Jennifer Howard – “Everyone is rushing now to announce,” Douglas Armato, director of the University of Minnesota Press, said via e-mail. He has been involved in the planning conversations behind some of the new ventures. “The good news, I think, is that the e-transition for the institutional market is clearly—and finally—at escape velocity,” he added.
