nclive logoUNC Press is pleased to announce its partnership with NC LIVE, North Carolina’s statewide public and academic library consortium, as it experiments with new ebook purchasing and funding models that will give North Carolina library patrons unlimited access to more than 1000 ebook titles from North Carolina-based publishers.

In addition to UNC Press, the pilot program will feature works from Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill (an imprint of Workman Books), Crossroad Press, Gryphon House, Ingalls Publishing Group, John F. Blair Publishing, McFarland, and Press 53.

UNC Press director John Sherer said, “From a publisher’s perspective, this project was a unique opportunity for us to share our ebook content with North Carolinians in a way that we hadn’t been able to in the past. We’re very excited to be a part of this important new initiative.”
