This is one of several CIC EPV (E-Publishing Venture) working prototypes. It contains a sampling of scholarly e-books from the CIC University Presses. The EPV is a collaborative endeavor between the CIC Presses and University Libraries to explore opportunities for the creation, dissemination, and archiving of electronic texts produced by the CIC universities.

During the remainder of 2002 the CIC EPV Task Force will be studying user needs and preferences, as well as modifying the prototypes. Please send your comments, questions, and suggestions to Tom Peters, Director of the CIC Center for Library Initiatives (

NOTE: These prototypes are intended solely for the educational and research use of currently affiliated faculty, staff, and students of CIC member universities (Chicago, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, and Wisconsin-Madison).
