In response to the COVID-19 crisis, effective today access restrictions
have been removed on all 1,150+ titles in the University of Michigan Press
Ebook Collection (UMP EBC <https://www.fulcrum.org/michigan>) until the end
of April 2020. Librarians are encouraged to register
<https://umich.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cTNlZAMty6ReTg9> to be alerted to
any extensions of access and details of where title lists, MARC records,
usage stats, etc. can be located. But registration is not necessary to
access the content. It's globally free-to-read with no access restrictions.

The UMP EBC contains the Press' scholarly output published since 2012 as
well as new books and older titles as they are digitized. Strengths include
political science and public (including health) policy, performing arts,
classical and medieval studies, American studies, and Area studies
(especially East Asian, African, and German studies).  Over 200 titles in
the collection are used in courses and there are almost 300 award-winners.
The Press has a blog post

titles that are the most discussed, most used in classrooms, and most
