“I’d love to see more university presses become part of it. The more information and content we get into a single interface, the easier it is for users and librarians.” – Sue Polanka, Librarian, Wright State University 

“Librarians will be excited that this platform comes from a university press and that it is available online, providing excellent research at good value.” – Rachel Lee, Library Relations Manager, University of California Press
