Last January, we announced plans to acquire EBL and merge the service with ebrary.  Kari Paulson and Kevin Sayar spoke with award-winning blogger Sue Polanka of the popular blog No Shelf Required  right after the announcement about the acquisition and plans for integrating the two platforms.

In May of 2013, the process was complete.  Since that time, staff at ProQuest have been very busy with the integration of the platforms.  Kathy Masnik, Vice President of product management for ebooks at ProQuest, is leading the charge for integration.  It’s a monumental task, but Kathy took a break from her Gantt chart to talk to No Shelf Required once more about the process in a recorded interview.

They discussed how Kathy and her team are approaching the integration; how librarians, publishers, and end users and involved; and some of the short term changes happening with the EBL interface.
