ebrary Adds New Pricing Options, Content

ebrary (http://www.ebrary.com) has added an "all you can eat" pricing option for its ebrarian for Libraries service. This option includes an annual license fee plus a fixed charge based on FTE, which allows patrons unlimited print/copy transactions. The company reports that many libraries favor this option because it allows easier budget allocation.

Alternatively, libraries can choose the initial pricing option in which patrons set up accounts with ebrary and pay for their own print/copy transactions. The average cost per print/copy transaction is 15 to 50 cents per page.

ebrarian for Libraries is a service for desktop delivery of content that integrates with existing catalog systems and other digital resources through the use of MARC records, which are included with the service. ebrary is continually expanding its collection, and there is no extra charge during the subscription year as its database grows. Over the past few weeks, ebrary has added approximately 1,000 new titles from established publishers to its online collection, which it is now offering as part of the ebrarian service.

ebrary has also recently launched a consumer site at http://shop.ebrary.com, although the company has not officially announced this, according to a company spokesperson. At the site, individuals can search the full text of books from over 100 publishers and view titles for free. Consumers can purchase the entire print publication or pay for the convenience of printing or copying the exact information they need from within the books.
