Launched in January, 2000, this collaborative project of the University of Pennsylvania and Oxford University Press (OUP) will "study digital book use and its impact on teaching, learning, and book sales." While the full collection of texts (300-400 titles in history over the next five years) will only be available to the Penn community, the project does offer a preview site for the general public. At this site, users can read the full text of three recently published (1999 and 2000) OUP books: Louise Newman's White Women's Rights The Racial Origins of Feminism in the United States, Walter Laqueur's The New Terrorism: Fanaticism and the Arms of Mass Destruction, and Joseph Rothschild's Return To Diversity: A Political History of East Central Europe Since World War II.
