ProQuest Ebook Central

Since the beginning of ebooks, ebrary and EBL have partnered with libraries to develop innovative offerings that help meet their needs. By combining forces, ebrary and EBL now offer the industry’s most robust content selection and the most innovative acquisition models. Join Neil Sorensen (Sr. Ebook Specialist, ProQuest) to hear about exciting updates on our all new combined ebook platform and more! We are eager to work with our customers in a consultative way, to help libraries make choices that best fit within current workflows to optimize budget and more efficiently serve end user needs.

ProQuest Ebook Central will integrate the strengths of the EBL and ebrary platforms with new functionality. At the core of Ebook Central is an exhaustive selection of authoritative, scholarly content -- 780,000 titles and 1,350 imprints from more than 650 publishers on one platform. An average of 100,000 newly published titles will be added each year to so that libraries can build dynamic collections that address the unique needs of their community of researchers.

The platform includes:

• Modern, user-centered design for researchers including full-text catalog search at the book and chapter level, an intuitive interface that supports online and offline reading, and bookshelf, spanning the breadth of patron requirements, from discovery to reading to retrieval & sharing.
