Welcome to CUNY's installation of Manifold, an intuitive, collaborative, open-source platform for scholarly publishing

With Manifold, you can publish dynamic digital texts with rich media support, powerful annotation tools, and robust community dialogue. Manifold transforms scholarly publications into living digital works. This CUNY installation serves as a free publishing platform for the CUNY community, where you can create projects to house either your own scholarship or custom classroom versions of texts and textbooks that are openly licensed or in the public domain.

If you would like to be able to contribute texts or projects to this platform, please create an account and complete our brief permissions request form.

CUNY Student Editions

Open-source, scholarly editions of historical texts, accessibly designed for students. Editions are offered to the public at no cost by a team of CUNY students and faculty.

American Literature

This is a collection of custom teaching versions of public domain American Literature texts created by instructors at CUNY and available for all as reading texts. We are building similar collections in other fields as faculty add more projects across the disciplines.
