The University of Manchester Library and Manchester University Press (MUP) have collaborated to offer instant and unlimited access to all of MUP’s digital content.
All staff and students will now have access to MUP’s digital content of over 1,600 eBooks and journals across the humanities and social sciences through Library Search and through two exciting new platforms, manchesterhive and manchesteropenhive (the home for all of MUP’s open access content). Both platforms are also available through the Library Databases A-Z.
The collections bring together research monographs, edited collections, scholarly critiques and journals written by leading researchers in the field, including a growing number of colleagues based here at the University.
The online resources in manchesterhive incorporate 12 themed ‘bundles’ on topics ranging from Film Studies and Manchester Medieval Studies in the arts, to Political Studies and Studies in Imperialism in the social sciences. The new platforms draw together wide-ranging publications by a host of University colleagues, as well as award-winning titles such as Hilary Pilkington’s Loud and Proud can be readily accessed, together with recent publications such as Penny Bee et al.’s A Research Handbook for Patient and Public Involvement.
