The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Duke University Press has struck an arrangement with HathiTrust and Google to digitize a large number of its backlist files and to make them freely available. They speak of as many as a thousand titles for possible inclusion, to be made available under Creative Commons for free noncommercial use. "There's not much of a market for... books about Carter-administration housing policy, or Irish elections in the early 1980s." Print-on-demand will be available as well. Google provides the scanning, Hathi the housing, and Duke secures the authors' permissions.
