As part of a wider emphasis on digital publishing and the relevance of
humanities scholarship, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National
Endowment for the Arts (NEH) are giving new life to out-of-print humanities
books. In January the two organizations announced a new joint pilot grant
program, Humanities Open Book, which will help publishers identify
important out-of-print works, secure rights to them, and convert them to
EPUB format ebooks freely accessible under a Creative Commons (CC) license.
Awards range from $50,000 to $100,000 per recipient, and will cover a
period of one to three years.
