**Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility**
The ACLS Humanities E-Book Collection (ACLS HEB) is a collaboration between the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), Michigan Publishing, and the Fulcrum publishing platform. There are three main areas in which ACLS and Michigan Publishing have worked together to improve diversity and inclusion for the ACLS HEB collection: through introducing values-based criteria into collection development; through improving the accessibility of the platform; and through experimenting with open access models that increase equitable access.

As the only Ebook collection curated by scholars, for scholars, ACLS HEB depends on the [member societies of ACLS](https://acls.org/Member-Societies/Society-Profiles.aspx) to partner with us in selecting new titles and curating the collection over time. We endeavor to maintain ongoing communication with as many ACLS societies as possible, and we hope that offering discounted individual access to the collection will help learned societies better serve their independent, contingent, or otherwise precarious members. If you are a representative of a learned society and wish to become involved with selection or individual access, please contact ACLS HEB’s Acquiring Editor, Sean Guynes, at [guynes@umich.edu](mailto:guynes@umich.edu).
