Books may be accessed directly from links in the MARC records that have been loaded into the catalog of a subscribing institution. These records contain stable URLs that represent the most reliable way to reach the material at our site. If a subscribing institution has an access system that requires that URLs be rewritten, such as for proxy service, statistics tabulation, etc., that institution will need to make those local modifications to the URLs as system access requires.

For most access problems (particularly off-campus), including any proxy server questions, please consult the list of common access problems at:

http://www.lib.umich.edu/digital-library-production-service-dlps/dlps-common-access-problems.

If you experience any browser compatibility issues, you may want to try downloading an updated browser from one of the following sites:

OpenURL Compliance

HEB is OpenURL compliant on the title level, but not on the chapter and page level. In order to offer the most stable link to an individual title, you may use the title-specific handle, which can be found in the book’s catalog record, and the format for which matches the following example:

...

You may also use the Citable Link on the title record page of each book at www. https://fulcrum.org/heb, located beneath the Subject. The format matches this example:

ACLS Humanities E-Book is live on the Fulcrum platform as of August 1, 2018. From https://www.fulcrum.org/accessibility

:

The Fulcrum platform aims to meet WCAG 2.1 AA Standards in both the platform and its content by providing infrastructure and resources to support accessible books, image descriptions, transcripts for audio, captions for video, and alternative formats for digitized content.

The extent to which Fulcrums meets WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act is reported in Fulcrum’s Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPATVPAT®) Version 2.13 INT.

If you have any further questions, please email subscriptions@hebook.org.

MARC records are available free to subscribers and can be downloaded here.

As of November 2019 , the following files are available:

  • HumanitiesOpenBook_MARC.zip (13 records, representing the 13 Humanities Open Book Program titles on the HEB platform as of August 2017)
  • acls16.zip (includes 109 records, representing 110 books added October 2019)
  • REMOVED RECORDS COMING SOON (Updated 11/19)
  • acls1-15.zip (includes records for all books in rounds 1-15, totaling 5,409 titles).  Note that some MARC records are consolidated for multi-volume sets.
    • UPDATED FULL RECORD SET COMING SOON. 

from a public folder on Box.

PLEASE NOTE: The records are MARC21, USMARC records, in Unicode UTF-8 format. There is a discrepancy between the number of records and the number of books in the collection due to the fact that multi-volume sets share a single record. Every effort has been made to bring these records up to current national standards.

Institutional subscribers can access their stats for our new platform, Fulcrum, at www.at https://fulcrum.org/counter_reportsThis requires no login; it uses IP authentication to identify the requesting institution. You may need to alter the previous link to a proxied URL in order to be IP-authenticated to the reporting system.

Stats have been recorded here on Fulcrum since our migration on August 1, 2018. You can still access stats from before July 31, 2018 at httphttps://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/s/stats/subscriber (choose ACLS Humanities E-Book (acls) in scrolling menu).

However, there are circumstances in which you may want to add a more nuanced configuration.

If you’re currently using RedirectSafe or NeverProxy for handle.net, then add the following near the top of your config file:

AnonymousURL +https://hdl.handle.net

...

/*
AnonymousURL +http://hdl.

...

handle.net/*
AnonymousURL +https://

...

handle.net/*
AnonymousURL +http://handle.net/*

… and add this line to the end of the Fulcrum stanza:

AnonymousURL -*

Similarly, the following lines should be added near the top of your config file instead of using RedirectSafe or NeverProxy for doi.org or dx.doi.org:

AnonymousURL +https://

...

dx.

...

doi.org/*
AnonymousURL +http://dx.doi.org/*
AnonymousURL +https://

...

doi.org/*
AnonymousURL +http://

...

doi.org/*

This would also require the presence of the following line to the end of the Fulcrum stanza:

AnonymousURL -*


For the proxy service to take effect, users at your campus or institution need to access the service via a connection through the proxy server, not directly. Your proxy server administrator can provide you with a proper URL for linking to our service; ensure that your users are entering via that URL.

Please note that throttle settings in your configuration may have a negative impact on your members' use of large files on Fulcrum. 

IP Address Updates

If you would like to add an IP address to your authorized range (or remove one), please send us your update request by contacting subscriptions@hebook.org, and the data will be forwarded to our technical support team. We will send a confirmation when the update has been made. Please note there is no separate log-in allowing subscribers to independently enter updates.

The University of Michigan campus backbone, on which Fulcrum is hosted, does not support IPv6 at this time. Please continue to send us your IPv4 ranges for basic authentication.

Common Access Problems

If you experience problems that result in being prompted for authentication, inability to reach the authentication page itself, or receiving a message that collections are not authorized, please consult: http://www.lib.umich.edu/digital-library-production-service-dlps/dlps-common-access-problems.

are unable to resolve a Handle URL from our MARC records (e.g. https://hdl.handle.net/2027/heb.05823), you will need to add the domain 'hdl.handle.net' to your firewall's allowlist.

Shibboleth / OpenAthens / SSO

Fulcrum supports access for your institution's members through federated Single Sign-On technologies such as Shibboleth or OpenAthens. Fulcrum is a member of InCommon and participates in eduGAIN.  Allowing your members to access

...

ACLS HEB via your Shibboleth / OpenAthens Identity Provider requires the following:

  1. Your institution must have a SAML-based Identity Provider (IdP) whose metadata we can consume via a stable URL and which defines a security domain using shibMD:scope. This is most commonly achieved through membership to an identity federation that participates in eduGAIN.  The following federations have been confirmed to support access to Fulcrum via eduGAIN as of November 2019:
    • Canadian Access Federation (CAF)
    • HEAnet / Edugate
    • InCommon
    • UK Federation
  2. Your Identity Provider must be configured to release attribute 'eduPersonScopedAffiliation' to entityId 'https://fulcrum.org/sp'.
  3. You must provide us with the entityId of your Identity Provider.

Please note that Fulcrum is not a member of OpenAthens Federation. You must participate in another identity federation to take advantage of SSO integration.
