The flexibility of electronic resources combined with years of working with print can make figuring out where to start with ebooks difficult. ProQuest is here to help…
We offer a growing selection of more than 740,000 ebooks from leading publishers—including the most university presses—with coverage of all subjects. Mobile access and platforms built for research meet users’ on-demand needs and expectations.
We offer the most flexible modes including Subscription, Demand-driven Acquisition, Short-term Loans and Perpetual Access which can be tailored and used in combination to meet libraries’ specific needs and budget requirements.
Take the guesswork out of collection development with Demand-Driven Access (DDA), giving users on-demand access to the titles that they need, or choose subscriptions and perpetual packages hand selected by librarians.
By integrating with Summon and other discovery services and providing free MARC records, ebrary and EBL help users find and use your ebook collection, showcasing its value.
Leverage our analytics and usage reports to prove library value to key stakeholders. Our Patron Analytics can be used to tie library usage to information literacy, retention rates and more.
Ebooks can be ordered and managed directly through ProQuest or through partners such as YBP, Coutts, Swets and others.
Subscriptions are an affordable way to offer coverage of all academic subject areas with Academic Complete™ or single subjects like Business, Humanities, Medicine, Engineering and Technology. All ProQuest subscriptions offer unlimited access and continued growth at no extra cost.
ProQuest’s DDA model enable libraries to offer wide-scale yet controlled access to vast numbers of titles of their choice, while only having to purchase those that are used. Libraries may leverage Short-term Loans, mediation, fund codes and profiles.
ProQuest offer flexible options for Short-term Loans, which may be used as an additional layer of mediation before titles are triggered for purchase under our Demand-driven Acquisition programs or as a supplement to traditional ILL.
Available with unlimited-user, three-user and single-user licenses, this model enables libraries to buy individual titles as well as discounted packs. ProQuest’s Non-Linear™ Lending and Extended Access™ allow libraries to reduce upfront costs and prevent turnaways.
ebrary and EBL continue to partner with the world’s leading publishers including the largest number of university presses.
We partner with book vendors such as YBP, Coutts, Swets and others, enabling libraries to acquire titles using their existing print and digital workflow. Our resellers distribute our solutions to libraries and other institutions around the world.
To help libraries efficiently and affordably acquire the ebooks their students need, we continue to partner with consortia and regional networks. We have also pioneered Demand-driven Acquisition programs specifically for consortia.
Teamwork is key to supporting the entire ebook workflow, so we continue to integrate and enhance our solutions with both ProQuest and third-party party technologies and services.
