[Eril-l] Project Muse individual ebook titles and knowledge base collections

Hello all

I am new to Project MUSE, in the new position of Metadata & Linked Data Strategist.  One of my duties is to work with our linking/discovery partners.  To clarify a little more on what Lisa Gonzalez stated: Project MUSE is now supplying a collection to EBSCO-EDS and OCLC named Project MUSE EBA all single titles.  This is a separate collection than the All E-books (this includes OA books and books only available in collections, not single title/EBA sales).  Additionally, there are individual book collections (for example 2016 History).  If you select the all EBA collection you may see metadata for items that are not in your EBA purchasing plan.  If you do not want to see those then do not select that collection.  You may upload your individual EBA collection records to your local catalog and we are more than happy to assist you with getting access to those records (MARC, KBART, or Excel).

Thank you all for your patience as we put this together.
Feel free to contact muse at press.jhu.edu<mailto:muse at press.jhu.edu> with questions

Best regards,

An update on Project Muse individual ebooks in OCLC's knowledge base. There is now a collection in Collection Manager called Project Muse All Ebooks, Collection ID Muse.allebooks, with 57,165 titles. This is more than the Project Muse EBA collection some libraries in my consortium have access to, but it appears to be all of the Project Muse ebooks available for individual sale. If you use Collection Manager to manage your title-by-title and EBA workflows, you'll need to decide on what workflow will work best for you based on one collection rather than also having a separate collection available for EBA, but at least there should now be regular updates on all title-by-title ebooks available on the Project Muse platform.
