Random House Ebooks Now Available From EBSCO

EBSCO Information Services now offers more than 30,000 frontlist and popular backlist ebooks from Random House on its EBSCO eBooks and Audiobooks platform. These fiction and nonfiction ebooks, from all Random House imprints and publishing groups, will be included in EBSCO’s Best-Sellers, New Releases, and Youth Award Winners collections.

“Having the best-selling titles from Random House available in EBSCO’s comprehensive and powerful research experience [EBSCOhost] makes for a good combination,” says Ken Breen, EBSCO eBooks and Audiobooks’ VP of product management. “It will allow librarians to offer their patrons an easy way to access the award-winning titles from Random House that they are looking for while increasing the usage and visibility of the library’s entire collection.”

The Random House titles join about 600,000 ebooks and audiobooks available to library patrons for downloading to mobile devices. Libraries can acquire these ebooks without paying markups or fees, which facilitates cost-effective collection development.
