EBSCO to Distribute AP Images Collection to Libraries

EBSCO Publishing will make millions of images from the Associated Press (AP) available to library customers. EBSCO has been named the sole library distributor of the AP Images, the commercial photo unit of AP. It is one of the world’s largest collections of historical and contemporary imagery including more than 12 million photographs dating back more than 100 years.

AP Images Collection is a primary source database with millions of images from 1826 to present and more than 3,500 additional photographs are added daily. The collection also includes 36,400 audio sound bytes dating from the 1920s and more than 2,900 multimedia interactives. The multimedia interactives represent a compilation of integrated video, graphics, and photos that bring the latest news and educational topics to life. In addition, AP Images Collection provides 2.7 million Associated Press news stories from 1997 to present, and a professionally produced collection of more than 340,000 maps, graphs, charts, logos, flags, and illustrations.

The archive is currently available on AP Images.com but the eventual migration to EBSCOhost will benefit customers accessing the content through EBSCOhost as well as EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). AP Images Collection via EBSCOhost and EDS will provide a greater search experience for the end user with millions of images integrated into results.

Libraries using EDS that purchase AP Images Collection will add a rich database of images that will complement results from other image providers, as well as results from journals, magazines, newspapers, newswires, ebooks, print books, conference proceedings, video, and other sources types. EDS is a comprehensive discovery service for magazine, journal, and ebook searching, and this extensive collection from Associated Press, when teamed with other collections, means that EDS will be the most comprehensive discovery service for images.
