"Fordham University Press and Fordham University Libraries have received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to produce a rare series of philosophy eBooks through the library’s digital portal.
The $81,000 grant, part of the Humanities Open Book Program, will allow the press to make publicly accessible eBooks out of 21 previously published titles with an emphasis on American philosophy. Many of the titles chosen are books already out of print, said Kate O’Brien-Nicholson, associate director of the press.
The press has published more than 3,000 scholarly books since its founding in 1907 and has long been recognized as a leading American publisher of philosophy scholarship, she said."
