Cornell University Library and Duke University Press Announce Partnership;
Duke to Provide Enhanced Services for Project Euclid

ITHACA, NY and DURHAM, NC, USA (April 11, 2008) – In a publishing 
agreement that reaches across boundaries by bringing together a leading 
U.S. academic research library and one of the nation’s outstanding 
university presses, Cornell University Library (Cornell) and Duke 
University Press (Duke) today announced that they have established a 
joint venture to expand and enhance the services of Project Euclid, the 
premier online information community for mathematics and statistics 
resources from independent publishers.

Effective July 2008, Duke will provide publishing expertise in 
marketing, sales, and order fulfillment to Project Euclid’s 
participating publishers and institutional subscribers. Duke will work 
to broaden and deepen Project Euclid’s subscriber base, resulting in 
greater global exposure for 54 journals and a growing number of 
monographs and conference proceedings. Cornell will continue to provide 
and support the vital IT infrastructure for Project Euclid and assume 
responsibility for archiving and preservation activities, ensuring 
robust and reliable access to the content deposited with Project Euclid 
for future scholars, researchers, and students.

Now home to 93,000 journal articles (75% of which are open access), 
along with 60 monographs and conference proceedings, Project Euclid and 
its partner publishers will benefit from Duke’s commitment to Project 
Euclid’s mission and from the Press’s publishing proficiency, reputation 
for quality consciousness, and university-based value system. Duke’s 
recent initiative to expand its journals publishing program into 
science, technology and medicine further ensures that together the 
Cornell Library and Duke University Press will achieve Project Euclid’s 
goal to become a primary “destination site” for mathematicians and 
statisticians.

“A collaboration that pairs the complementary strengths of a leading 
research library and a university press from different universities is 
an extraordinary move. The result is nothing less than securing the 
future of alternative publishing options for independent presses in the 
fields of mathematics and statistics,” said Anne Kenney, Carl A. Kroch 
University Librarian, Cornell University Library.

“I am delighted that our long relationship with the Cornell University 
Library has resulted in an agreement that will be of great benefit to 
both parties, as well as to the partner journals in Project Euclid and 
to the many users of Project Euclid in the mathematics and statistics 
communities,” said Steve Cohn, Director of Duke University Press.

This joint venture was undertaken in cooperation with the Scholarly 
Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), an alliance of 
universities, research libraries, and organizations, created by the 
Association of Research Libraries.

Leadership for Project Euclid will be assumed by management at both 
Cornell and Duke.


About Cornell University Library
The Cornell University Library is one of the ten largest research 
libraries in North America. Its holdings exceed 7.5 million volumes and 
over 395,000 networked electronic resources. The Library has a 
distinguished record in the area of scholarly communication for the 
physical sciences and mathematics. In addition to Project Euclid, the 
Library operates the physics e-print server, arXiv, the first and still 
the most important example of open access to current scientific 
research. The Library’s early digitization of 576 mathematics monographs 
(1991) served as the basis of their participation in a collaborative 
NSF-supported project involving the University of Michigan Library and 
the Göttingen State and University Library to develop an interoperable 
digital collection. For more information, please visit 
http://www.library.cornell.edu/

About Duke University Press
Duke University Press publishes approximately 120 books annually and 
more than 30 journals, including the prestigious Duke Mathematical 
Journal, which the Press has published since the journal’s inception in 
1935. Duke University Press is known as a publisher willing to take 
chances with nontraditional and interdisciplinary publications, both 
books and journals. Like the University as a whole, the Press seeks to 
pursue its objectives with vision and integrity. In the case of Duke 
University Press, that means a commitment to the highest standards of 
both critical scholarly review and professional publishing judgment. For 
more information, please visit http://dukeupress.edu/

About Project Euclid
Since its launch in 2003, Project Euclid has been recognized worldwide 
as a distinctive online environment for the distribution of serial 
literature in theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics. 
Established in 2000 with generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon 
Foundation, Euclid’s mission is to assure that the mathematics and 
statistics communities continue to benefit from a healthy balance of 
commercial enterprises, scholarly societies, and independent publishers.
