Print and ebook sales

Modified on Thu, 31 May 2018 at 02:09 PM

All digital material published or disseminated by eScholarship is available worldwide, free of cost, to researchers and the general public. Alongside this free availability, some of our users offer ebooks or print editions of their books for sale. Publications available for purchase display a “Buy” link.

If you are a unit administrator you can add a “Buy” link to any book, directing users to a print-on-demand service, a traditional publisher, or any other type of storefront:

  • Login to your account;
  • Select the item you wish to manage;
  • Select Make Changes under Item Actions;
  • Select “Add keywords, abstract, etc.”
  • Add the URL in the box for “Buy link.”

eScholarship does not currently work directly with any print-on-demand (POD) vendors. There are three options that appear to be fairly popular, for those who wish to explore POD services on their own:

If you have experience working directly with any of these services that might help other eScholarship users who are interested in print-on-demand services, please contact us to share your insight!
