The University of Pittsburgh Press, in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh Library System and the Chicago Digital Distribution Center (CDDC), is making nearly 500 out-of-print Press titles available again for scholars and students around the world.
Representing the full range of scholarly series and subject areas published by the Press,
these titles are now part of the University of Pittsburgh Press Digital Editions collection,
fully searchable and freely accessible to anyone with an internet connection through the
University of Pittsburgh Library System?s D-Scribe Digital Publishing Program. Over the
next year, they will also be made available for purchase in reasonably priced paperback
editions through the CDDC. ...
Since its inception in December 2007, the University of Pittsburgh Press Digital Editions
site has been visited by thousands of users, many from outside the United States. Sales
of the UPPDE titles still in print and requests for print copies of out-of-print titles suggest
sufficient interest among scholars and students in having these titles available again as
printed books. ...

The open access movement:
Putting peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly literature
on the internet. Making it available free of charge and
free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.
Removing the barriers to serious research.
