The Project MUSE® complete collection offers a comprehensive selection of prestigious humanities, arts, and social sciences journals to support a core liberal arts curriculum at any academic institution. Every journal is heavily indexed and peer-reviewed, with articles by respected scholars in their fields. MUSE is also the sole source of complete, full-text versions of titles from many of the world's leading university presses and scholarly societies.
For more information about each of the 6 collections, please visit the Project Muse website at:

The following Muse collections are available:
This is a joint TAL / Consortia Canada agreement.
Effective in 2015, Project MUSE will be adjusting the pricing model to integrate the newer Carnegie Classification system. In addition, they will be eliminating pricing based on usage quartiles. In anticipation of this change for 2015, MUSE will keep all subscribers in their current “tier/quartile” placement for 2014; there will be no change in usage quartiles for 2014.
The only price change for 2014 is the increase in the base price for the various collections (maximum 5% for the Premium Collection; 3% or less for the other five MUSE journal collections).
Project MUSE will be communicating the 2015 price model changes in upcoming months so that libraries will have time to prepare.
MUSE is pleased to announce the confirmation of 19 new journals to join our online collections for 2014, with a few more expected to be confirmed shortly. The new titles grow our holdings across many core MUSE subject areas, including history, area studies, religion, film and media studies, philosophy, gender studies, literature, and medieval studies. A list of all new journals confirmed to date, along with other collection content updates, may be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/upcoming.html. MUSE also continues to expand our archival content holdings. Over 125 journals titles now offer complete runs, from the first volume and issue, on the MUSE platform. All archival content is immediately available to current subscribers to applicable titles at no additional charge. A full list of journals with complete runs in MUSE is at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/back_issues.html.
In response to subscriber feedback, MUSE will be re-launching an Advanced Search interface this fall; please watch for further announcements. With the re-launch, we anticipate updating our training materials and tutorials, and also making available new materials that libraries may download or order at no charge for use in sharing information with their user populations. Subscribing libraries are encouraged to bookmark and visit often our “For Librarians” page (http://muse.jhu.edu/about/librarians/index.html) to view newly available resources, access tools such as usage statistics and holdings downloads, sign up for our e-newsletter, and submit requests for free instructional and support materials.
