Project Muse


To assist libraries interested in subscribing to Project Muse obtain the maximum discount possible, the Commission has arranged to participate in the group purchase of Project MUSE coordinated by the LYRASIS regional library network. Nebraska libraries are eligible for a 10% discount on the following Project Muse database packages if they subscribe through LYRASIS:

  • Premium Collection
  • Standard Collection
  • Basic Research Collection
  • Basic College Collection (formerly Basic Undergraduate Collection)
  • Humanities Collection
  • Social Sciences Collection

For more information view collection descriptions and comparison charts by title and discipline.


Pricing levels for U.S. academic libraries are divided into five "tiers" based on type of institution as defined by the Carnegie Classification, and four "quartiles" based on usage. Usage is defined by the number of full-text downloads per institution during a calendar year, and quartiles are determined by comparing usage levels among institutions in the same tier. The usage quartiles will be recalculated annually. Muse will send all customers and/or consortia partners a letter annually indicating the current usage to be used in determining renewal prices. All new customers are considered to be in "Quartile 1" until an entire calendar year's worth of usage statistics are available. Renewing customers who upgrade to a different collection should figure their price based on the latest usage quartile assigned to them.
