EBSCO Releases Ebook Subscription Collection for Business Professionals
EBSCO Publishing released its first ebook subscription collection for corporations. BusinessCore is designed to support the learning and research needs of business professionals. The collection is available as an annual subscription with unlimited access to the content.
The BusinessCore collection includes thousands of full text ebook titles from leading publishers. New titles will be added on a monthly basis. With BusinessCore, professionals are provided with an easy way to access ebooks specific to their corporate research and learning needs. The collection provides a robust ebook experience that includes the ability to search alongside EBSCO’s industry-leading magazine and journal collections, create and add notes and bookmarks, as well as save research for future reference. Users can print, email, and save chapters, or transfer them to a number of ebook readers and mobile devices including the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble NOOK, and Sony Digital Book.
The BusinessCore collection offers more than 5,600 ebook titles and presents detailed, in-depth coverage of a wide variety of business topics including leadership and management, marketing, project management, business communications, finance and accounting, human resources and sales. The collection also provides many authoritative titles on more specialized subjects such as M&As, green business, strategic planning, negotiating, time management, and corporate learning materials.
Annual subscription is the latest way EBSCO enables corporate libraries to add ebooks to their collections. Corporate libraries or learning departments are also able to purchase titles to add to their permanent collection, lease titles they only need for a short time, and place other titles in a collection to be purchased only if/when users need them (Patron Driven Acquisition).
As with all ebooks available from EBSCO, BusinessCore will integrate seamlessly with all EBSCOhost content. The BusinessCore subscription collection may also be integrated into corporate portals and intranets, learning management systems (LMSs), as well as mapped to an organization’s key competencies. Customers thus have easy access to relevant content wherever and whenever needed.
