MUSE’s online journal collections are available on a subscription basis to academic, public, special, and school libraries. Currently, more than 2,500 libraries worldwide subscribe to Project MUSE. Electronic book collections in MUSE became available for institutional purchase in January 2012. Thousands of scholarly books are now available on the platform.
