Espresso Book Machine

The University of Michigan Library no longer offers the Espresso Book Machine service. Alternatively, many public domain titles from the University of Michigan collection may be ordered from Amazon. In some cases, a "Buy a copy" link is present under the "Get this Book" section of the full text online in HathiTrust, or you may search Amazon.com directly.

It also may be possible to have a book printed and shipped to you from another EBM location. Search for titles of interest at the On Demand Books website at http://www.ondemandbooks.com/as/

Michigan Publishing Services may be able to assist U of M faculty members and staff with print projects that previously were candidates for the EBM. Please contact mpub-help@umich.edu to arrange a consultation.

For self-publishing projects, many online self-publishing services are now available, such as Lulu, Blurb, BookBaby, and CreateSpace, to name just a few. Most have templates and other tools available to assist customers with formatting and uploading books, and may offer the choice of making your book available for sale if you wish, or keeping it private so that only you can order one or more copies.

There also are some local (Ann Arbor area) commercial printers who may have options for you depending on your needs, such as Edwards Brothers Malloy, Thomson Shore, and Sheridan Books.

We regret any inconvenience caused by the removal of the EBM service from the Library.

 

*Disclaimer: the list of commercial printers and self-publishers mentioned above is not exhaustive, and is not to be considered an endorsement of any specific service or printer.
