University of California Press Ebook Collection Now Available

The UC libraries have acquired a comprehensive collection of ebooks from the University of California Press, and these books are accessible now on the DeGruyter platform. They are currently being cataloged by the California Digital Library, so you will be able to find them in OskiCat. The acquisition, which was funded by CDL, gives UC libraries perpetual access to nearly every UC Press title published since 1928, including the 2020 frontlist. In total, UC has gained access to 5,193 titles from UC Press, which was founded in 1893 and is the sixth largest university press publisher in the United States.
