Fred Waring's America, within Penn State University Archives, The Special Collections Library, collaborated with the Penn State University Press on this project. According to Tony Sanfilippo, assistant press director, "The Press offers 1,320 titles on Amazon, including 63 as Kindle editions and 460 utilizing print-on-demand technology, so the Waring project was a natural extension of this digital platform.
