Manchester Shakespeare: new ebooks from Manchester University Press

Manchester University Press has launched a new collection not of an age, but for all time. Manchester Shakespeare provides new and significant commentary on all aspects of Shakespeare’s work (and that of his contemporaries), drawing on not only the written word, but Shakespeare in performance, in historical and cultural contexts, and in relation to critical theory.

Including approaching 50 books edited and authored by leading authorities on Shakespeare, the new collection provides critical understanding of Shakespeare’s contribution to literary and theatrical history and fresh perspectives on his plays.

Thanks to a collaborative purchase between the English Faculty Library and ebooks@cambridge, members of Cambridge University now have full text access to all of the ebooks within this collection, on and off-campus, via iDiscover or directly via Manchester Hive, MUPs online platform.

Here is a small selection of titles available within the collection to whet your appetites. Access is via the links below the cover images:

MARC records are available in iDiscover now for the 40+ titles which have already been published in this collection, with a few forthcoming titles/MARC records due later this year.

As usual, please contact ebooks@lib.cam.ac.uk if you have any questions about this collection or any other aspect of ebook provision at the University.

Cambridge Elements; “a dynamic reference resource for graduate students, researchers and practitioners”

Back in May 2018 the ebooks@cambridge team first posted about the then newly emerging Cambridge University Press Elements titles. This publishing programme has now officially launched and the amount of available titles are steadily increasing, with 76 Elements now hosted and accessible on Cambridge Core and searchable in iDiscover.

Cambridge Elements are a new concept in academic publishing and scholarly communication, combining the best features of books and journals. They consist of original, concise, authoritative, and peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific research, organised into focused series edited by leading scholars, and provide comprehensive coverage of the key topics in disciplines spanning the arts and sciences. This innovative format takes just 12 weeks to publish, and the born-digital titles are between 40-75 pages long. There are over 70 series already under contract, with another 30 in the planning stages. Two hundred titles are expected to be published in 2019, and CUP expect to standardly publish in the region of 250 titles per year.

Elements are organised in series within the following subjects.

All of these Elements titles in all of the series will be available for University of Cambridge registered students and staff. Catalogue records for newly published Elements will be added to iDiscover on a monthly basis, alongside the monograph and coursebook title records.

Click on the book covers below to connect to a selection of Elements titles on Cambridge Core. Please note: some of these titles are “coming soon” and some Elements are published Open Access.
