ALPSP eBooks Collection Launched by Ingram Digital

The much anticipated new ebooks cooperative service (www.alpsp-ebooks.org) enabling Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers members (ALPSP; www.alpsp.org) to offer multipublisher collections to libraries has launched. The ALPSP eBooks Collection (AeBC) includes more than 1,200 titles from 15 member publishers covering 11 subject areas. Many of the titles included in the AeBC have not been available previously in digital format. It is expected that other ALPSP member publishers will add titles in coming months. The AeBC will be available exclusively through Ingram Digital’s MyiLibrary platform (www.ingramdigital.com).

The launch collection publishers include American Psychiatric Publishing; Amsterdam University Press; Australian Academic Press; Edinburgh University Press; EDP Sciences; Equinox Publishing; Federation Press; Hindawi Publishing Corp.; International Food Information Service (IFIS Publishing); IOS Press; NRC Research Press; Multilingual Matters; Policy Press; Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; and Royal College of Psychiatrists.

The AeBC is available to libraries and other institutions through the extensive network of MyiLibrary distribution partners, which include Swets, the current provider of the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection, Coutts Information Services, and ProQuest.

Publishers participating in the AeBC will also benefit from access to Ingram Digital’s full range of content solutions including the MyiLibrary platform for individual ebook sales, the CoreSource digital asset management platform, and print-on-demand services from Lightning Source.
