Swets Partners with Taylor & Francis to Launch New eCollections

Swets Information Services ( announced it is partnering with Taylor & Francis ( to launch new Social Science and Humanities eCollections of e-books. The companies said the Social Science and Humanities eCollections provide a way for libraries to arrange access to a large number of e-books at low cost; the collections also increase accessibility to more users through the Web. The new eCollections have been sourced from imprints such as Routledge, RoutledgeFalmer, and Taylor & Francis.

Available by annual subscription, libraries can choose collections of e-books from 10 specific subject areas. They can also subscribe to the entire set of collections and receive an additional 10 percent discount. Subjects include business and management, economics, education, geography, history, literature, philosophy, politics and international relations, religion, and sociology.

Once in the library catalog, the eCollections are accessible from anywhere with Web access via IP addresses or username/password. No special plug-ins or downloads are needed. Each title in the eCollections can be viewed by up to five users at a time, and an online reservation system is provided if anyone is ever unable to access a title. In addition, individuals can see their own copy of each book; make their own private notations, highlights, and bookmarks; and print up to 5 percent of each book in the library collection. A free demonstration or 60-day trial account can be set up for either the entire collection or a specific subject area.
