Swets Acquires JSTOR Ebooks

JSTOR signed an agreement with Swets to make its ebooks available on the SwetsWise platform. In SwetsWise, librarians can compare prices and publisher policies and choose purchasing options.

Books at JSTOR, the digital library’s collection of more than 20,000 ebooks, is now joined with SwetsWise’s 1 million-plus ebooks from more than 43 publishers and aggregators. “JSTOR is one of the most well-known and widely used scholarly resources,” according to Linda Vendryes, Swets global business development manager. Adding JSTOR ebooks to SwetsWise helps libraries “looking to simplify the selection and acquisition of eBook content,” she says.

The agreement will help JSTOR customers as well, making it “easier to locate and purchase books of interest and make them available to library end users in an efficient manner that suits libraries’ internal workflows,” says Frank Smith, director of Books at JSTOR.
