Summon Service Slated to Index SciELO Ebook Titles

Serials Solutions, a ProQuest business, is working with Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) to index its ebook collection in the Summon discovery service. Recognizing that much scholarly work in the humanities and social sciences is published in book form rather than in periodicals, SciELO introduced this collection as a parallel to its collection of scientific academic journals. The collection is a mix of open access and commercial ebooks from major academic publishers in Brazil and Latin America.

The majority of titles are selected by a peer-review process and are devoted to social sciences and humanities, including fields such as architecture, art, economics, education, geography, history, linguistics, literature, media, music, performing arts, philosophy, political science, and sociology. The initial collection of about 250 books is expected to increase by 500-1,000 more books each year.

SciELO’s objective is to maximize the use, visibility, accessibility, and impact of the work of Latin American scholars. With the addition of these resources in the Summon service, the works will be more widely available to a worldwide audience. Used by more than 500 libraries in more than 40 countries, the Summon discovery service is based on a unified index of content.
