Zea E-Books is the open-access digital works imprint founded by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries in 2010. Intended to complement, not compete with, the University of Nebraska Press, it gives a voice to scholars whose works would not meet the financial publication demands of a traditional press. Not limited to Nebraska authors, titles to date include De bestiis marinis, or, The Beasts of the Sea (Steller), the Dictionary of Invertebrate Zoology (Maggenti, Maggenti and Gardner), and A Nebraska Bird-Finding Guide (Johnsgard). Operations are overseen by the publisher, Paul Royster, and executive editor, Sue Ann Gardner. An adjunct board of advisors includes the Director of the University of Nebraska Press, the Dean of the Libraries, and UNL faculty.
