In collaboration with UPF and a humanities advisory board, the Smathers Libraries’ project team will make 30 out-of-print books freely available online and in electronic formats. The project team plans to complete the following deliverables: 1) secure rights and permissions for selected books about Florida and the Caribbean published by the UPF from 1968 to 1992; 2) digitize and distribute with Creative Commons-licensing for books in EPUB 3.0.1, PDF for print-on-demand, and Web PDF formats; 3) implement a marketing plan to broadly promote online availability of books to scholars, educators, students, and the general public; 4) engage an expert Advisory Board to prioritize selections and plan for promotional and educational programmatic opportunities for university press and academic library collaborations; and, 5) produce a white paper that documents processes, costs, and impacts for rights issues while serving as a guide for replicating the collaborative process for other university presses and academic libraries.
