EBSCO Acquires History Databases From ABC-CLIO
ABC-CLIO (www.abc-clio.com) and EBSCO Publishing (www.epnet.com) have announced a new alliance. EBSCO has acquired two of ABC-CLIO’s databases, Historical Abstracts (HA) and America: History and Life (AHL), and will distribute eight additional history databases plus ABC-CLIO’s online history ebook collection, History Reference Online. The partnership serves to leverage ABC-CLIO’s expertise in the area of history with EBSCO’s content licensing, digitization, and distribution capabilities. ABC-CLIO’s editorial staff will continue producing content for the databases, and Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life will be made available via the EBSCOhost platform.
The distribution partnership makes the following ABC-CLIO databases available through EBSCO Publishing:
- World History: The Modern Era
- World History: Ancient and Medieval Eras
- World Geography: Understanding a Changing World
- American History
- American Government
- State Geography
- Issues: Understanding Controversy and Society
