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. As we’ve pioneered new models -- ebrary with subscription and EBL with DDA and Non-Linear™ Lending -- we’ve developed expertise in the user experience as well.
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.
Subscriptions are an affordable way to offer coverage of all subject areas with College Complete™ and Academic Complete™ or single subjects like Nursing, Computers, Career Development, and HR. All ebrary subscriptions offer unlimited access and continued growth at no extra cost.
EBL’s Demand-driven Acquisition and ebrary’s Patron Driven Acquisition models enable libraries to open the floodgates to vast numbers of titles of their choice, while only having to purchase those that are used. Both include the option of including flexible Short-term Loans.
Available with unlimited-user, three-user and single-user licenses, this model enables libraries to buy individual titles as well as discounted packs. EBL’s Non-Linear™ Lending and ebrary’s Extended Access™ allow libraries to reduce upfront costs and prevent turnaways.
Both ebrary and EBL 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 and Patron Driven Acquisition programs.
ebrary continues to partner with the world’s leading educational publishers such as ALA Editions, ASCD, Classroom Complete and National Science Teacher Association.
We partner with book vendors such as Baker and Taylor, YBP and Coutts, enabling libraries to acquire titles using their existing print and digital workflow. Our resellers distribute our solutions to libraries around the world.
To help libraries efficiently and affordably acquire the ebooks their users’ need, we continue to partner with consortia and regional networks. We have also pioneered Patron Driven Acquisition programs specifically for state and public libraries.
Teamwork is key to supporting the entire ebook workflow, so we continue to integrate and enhance our solutions with both ProQuest and third-party technologies including course management software like Moodle and Blackboard.
