Ancient News: From Eisenbrauns, an Imprint of PSU Press

in this issue

general news

Welcome to the April issue of Ancient News. What a change a month can bring! Shortly after sending last month’s Ancient News, we suspended our warehouse operations for the safety of our employees and in compliance with Governor Wolf’s shut-down order for all non-life-sustaining businesses. Needless to say, that makes getting books to you a bit difficult.

However, some of our books are still available for direct shipment to you from our printer (via print on demand) at a 40% discount using coupon code NR18. You can view the titles here. I’ve featured a few of them below.

We also have some e-books available from various vendors. I’ve featured a few of them below, as well. Don’t see the e-book you need? Talk to your institution’s librarian; we are offering special expanded access via EBSCO (see below).

We also have some books available through Accordance and Logos. Currently Accordance is offering selected Eisenbrauns titles at 30% off through May 4th.

Even though conferences are being canceled, you can still (virtually) visit our book displays. AOS is here, and World Christianity is here. You can find links to all our virtual exhibits here.

Other initiatives:

For Librarians: We are partnering with EBSCO to ensure unlimited access to Eisenbrauns/PSU Press e-books on their platform. EBSCO is upgrading existing holdings to Unlimited-User access until June 30 and discounting Unlimited-User access at One-User pricing for new e-book acquisitions.

For Scholars: Through June 30th, all Eisenbrauns/PSU Press books hosted on Project Muse and JSTOR are available to read for free. Journals hosted on Project Muse are free through the end of May.

Even though the 230th meeting of the American Oriental Society was canceled, the Society of Biblical Literature went ahead with plans to present Jim Eisenbraun with a surprise Festschrift celebrating more than 44 years of publishing. In keeping with the restrictions on travel, the event took place over video. You can read the announcement here and download the book here.

Even in the midst all the other things happening, there were several good reviews of Eisenbrauns books this month. I’ve included an excerpt of two of them below. Unfortunately, both of them are #stuckinthewarehouse. If you happen across a review of an Eisenbrauns book, please let me know about it via email!

Rounding out this month’s Ancient News is a pair of PSU Press books that you might find interesting.

Please, take care of yourselves, and read a good book—in between scrambling to get that next class online!
