Research Tools Give Information Context

10 Years of Usages Stats Tell the Full Story

For over a decade, our usage statistics have shown libraries as well as our team how ebooks are used on multiple levels.  In addition to driving your collection development with this data, we’re continually enhancing our offering to provide your end-users with the content they need.

The Research Experience is Customized Depending on Your Users’ Access Tool

We know that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to the end-user experience. That’s why we have multiple download options (including EPUB on EBL) and have developed the new Reader to operate on all devices, and easily interact with the highly-rated BlueFire Reader app for offline reading.

Personal Bookshelves Make Sense of Collected Resources

Bookshelves act as digital workspaces, allowing users to create folders that organize documents and annotations.  Bookshelves can be shared with peers.

ebrary Resources are Accessible to All

Accessibility tools like text-to-speech and text-to-hyperlinks are developed to improve ease of navigation, providing a better end-user experience for all researchers.
