Since the beginning of ebooks, ebrary and EBL have partnered with libraries, publishers, and partners to develop innovative offerings that help them meet their goals.

By joining forces under ProQuest, we now offer an unparalleled ebook experience with the widest content offering, most innovative models, and end-to-end workflow solutions.
