ProQuest is boosting the visibility of ebooks in library collections by indexing the full text of the entire catalog of EBL - Ebook Library in its Summon® discovery service.

EBL’s expansive catalog of more than 400,000 ebooks is now even more discoverable alongside titles from ebrary, which have been full-text indexed in the Summon service since 2012. The work to broaden discovery and accessibility of ebooks is occurring simultaneously with another major project: the integration of EBL and ebrary into a single ebook solution.
“This is another step in ProQuest’s ongoing quest to create a seamless research environment and an especially important one as we bring EBL and ebrary together into one service,” said Kari Paulson, ProQuest vice president and general manager, ebooks. “As we’ve already discovered with the full-text indexing of the ebrary collection, we can conquer a barrier to ebook use via Summon, since it brings the library to the user.”
