April showers bring…new in-copyright content to BHL!

April, May, and June were busy months for processing license agreements and adding new in-copyright titles: 35 in all, bringing our total to 56 for the first half of 2016! Many licensors outside the BHL Consortium gave permission for their content, which adds contemporary scholarship to the collection already rich in legacy literature.
