Brill’s MyBook program gives members of the Learned Society the option to purchasea print-on-demand paperback copy of books of their choice. Currently Brill offers 3,000 titles in the MyBook program, but this number continuesto grow as new titles are added on a weekly basis.The program is part of Brill’s broader initiative to make its publications more accessible to the scholarly community.
MyBook is an affordable paperback copy of a Brill publication intended for personal use. MyBook is printed on demand and has a generic cover. It is not possible for non-members to acquire a MyBook and KITLV members can only acquire the cheaper books via KITLV. The current price of a MyBook is € 30.25 including tax and excluding shipping from KITLV to the customer. The members’ discount of 25% is not applicable to MyBook publications.
