"An invaluable tool, which not only saves time, but makes possible research of a thoroughness not previously possible."
Roger Crisp, Editor of Utilitas, St. Anne's College, Oxford University, UK

“Astonishing in breadth and depth, the content in this formidable file, as well as the research material included in every one of the scholarly editions available, is superb throughout… This title should be owned by every research library serving serious scholars in the humanities.”
Cheryl LaGuardia, Widener Library, Harvard University
Evidence Based Acquisition
We are offering a new model to librarians - Evidence Based Acquisition. This adds an adaptable new way for libraries to expand their resources. Enabling a library to hand-curate a collection is tremendously valuable as a model where you have maximum flexibility to select the individual Authors needed for coursework and research to support its various programs in a cost-effective way. Purchasing decisions based on what patrons actually access ensure relevance to your courses and research needs.
Supporting the move from print to electronic
We’re excited to offer this new approach to provide access to these important resources, especially with the move from print to electronic. You may well have print books of some of these authors’ works, but with InteLex Past Masters you can make scholarly editions available to unlimited users - both now and future generations.
