In celebration of LGBT History Month, the ebooks@cambridge team shines a light on a selection of LGBT titles that are available within two of our ebook collections.
Demand-driven purchases on Ebook Central
The first group of titles are all part of our Demand-Driven Acquisition scheme with Ebook Central. In this scheme, catalogue records for a large number of ebooks meeting specific selection criteria are added to iDiscover. The books are fully accessible to users and are triggered for purchase (and therefore become a permanent part of the ebook collection) when used for longer than ten minutes or when a selection is printed. The following titles were all triggered for purchase during the academic year 2018-19. Click on the covers to access the ebooks:
Duke University Press
Duke University Press is known for publishing field-defining scholarship in queer theory, gay and lesbian studies and transgender studies. The University Library has purchased permanent ebook access to all 2016 – 2018 titles on Duke University Press’s own platform, and currently has access to all backlist titles too. Here are some of the LGBTQ+ titles from the 2018 collection (again, click on the covers to access the books):
All of the above titles in both collections are available to members of the University on and off-campus through iDiscover or via the links on this page. Off-campus access requires a Raven username and password.
As usual, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about these or other ebooks in our collection.
