UA Press receives Humanities Open Book grant from NEH and Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
Congratulations to the University of Arizona Press in Tucson! In April, UA press received a $73,000 grant from NEH and the Mellon Foundation to digitize out-of-print books that highlight experiences of indigenous and Latino groups in the Southwest, and bring these books back to life as ebooks. The grant program was created out of concern that the vast majority of humanities books are not available to the general public. In addition to ebooks, the grant will support a custom website, engage instructors and researchers in use of the texts, and support public events.
