Project MUSE News: Terry Ehling Appointed Associate Director

Project MUSE Appoints Terry Ehling as Associate Director, Content 
Development and Publisher Relations

Project MUSE is pleased to announce the appointment of Terry 
Ehling as Associate Director, Content Development and Publisher 
Relations, beginning August 1, 2011.

Ehling will play a lead role in the launch of the University 
Press Content Consortium (UPCC) ebook initiative that will 
deliver more than 15,000 ebooks from 65 university presses on 
Project MUSE. A beta site featuring integrated book and journal 
content in an enhanced MUSE interface will launch this summer, 
with sales beginning in the fall and the book collections 
available starting in January 2012.

"The JHU Press has entered an exciting new era as we launch the 
UPCC inside Project MUSE," said Kathleen Keane, Director of the 
Johns Hopkins University Press. "Terry's experience is a direct 
match with the innovative activities being undertaken by Project 
MUSE and the Press as a whole."

Most recently the Scholarly Publishing Strategist for Cornell 
University Press, Ehling was responsible for setting ebook 
strategy for a program that publishes 150 monographs per year. 
She served as executive director for Project Euclid at Cornell, a 
multi-publisher electronic publishing initiative in mathematics 
and launched CogNet, an online scholarly community for the brain 
and the cognitive sciences, as director of the Digital Projects 
Lab (DPL) at the MIT Press. Prior to founding the DPL, she was a 
senior acquisition editor at MIT where she was responsible for 
developing lists in computer science and economics.

"Terry brings twenty-five years of relevant publishing experience 
and a solid track record for leading digital publishing 
initiatives," said Dean Smith, Director of Project MUSE. "She has 
a vision for the future of scholarly publishing and embodies our 
overall mission, 'where tradition meets innovation.'"

Project MUSE is a leading provider of digital humanities and 
social science content for the scholarly community; since 1995, 
its electronic journal collections have supported a wide array of 
research needs at academic, public, special, and school libraries 
worldwide. MUSE is the sole source of complete, full-text 
versions of journal titles from many of the world's leading 
university presses and scholarly societies, with over 120 
publishers currently participating. UPCC eBook Collections on 
Project MUSE will launch in January 2012, offering top quality 
book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE's scholarly 
journal content, with library-friendly access and usage terms and 
affordable tiered pricing.
