New Medieval Academy Member Benefit


ACLS Humanities E-Book, a project of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), offers unlimited access to its collection of more than 3,300 cross-searchable, full-text titles across the humanities and social sciences, including works in history, art history, philosophy, literature, archaeology, musicology, the history of religion and other fields.  It contains hundreds of titles in late ancient, medieval and Renaissance studies and in such area studies as Women’s studies, Byzantine and Middle Eastern studies. At $35 a year that’s less than half the cost of a typical single monograph. ACLS Humanities E-book has been called, “One of the best – if not the best – electronically accessible sites in the humanities.” (Reviews in History, Institute of Historical Research, London).

ACLS Humanities E-Book titles have been selected and peer-reviewed by ACLS constituent learned societies for their continued importance and value in teaching and research.  The collection, which grows by about five hundred titles a year, includes both in- and out-of-print titles published from the 1880s to the present and offers monographs, collections of primary sources, selected collections of essays, born-digital and retrospectively digitized titles.  ACLS Humanities E-Book titles also link to publishers’ websites and to online reviews in JSTOR, Project MUSE, and other sites.

As a special benefit, individual members of the Medieval Academy of America can acquire a twelve-month, renewable subscription to ACLS Humanities E-Book for only $35.  The collection can be accessed anywhere with a standard web browser on desktop and laptop computers, tablets and handheld devices. This is particularly valuable for off-campus use, during travel, or for MAA members who are between institutional affiliations.
