ebrary Introduces New Government and Military Collections

ebrary (http://www.ebrary.com), an information services and technology provider, announced that several new collections specifically geared toward government and military libraries are now available through the ebrary Dynamic Content Platform (DCP), including Business, Management & Leadership; Computers, Technology & Engineering; International Relations & Military Affairs; Government Affairs; and Science & Environmental Studies. ebrary's DCP is a hosted content delivery service that combines patent-pending software with full-text books, reports, and other content from STM, academic, and professional publishers.

In addition to the new fixed content collections, which have flat rate pricing, ebrary also offers Government Complete, which includes all aggregated, government fixed collections plus thousands of premium titles not available in any other ebrary collection. This collection continues to grow at no additional cost throughout the subscription term and is priced based on the number of patrons. Libraries may also pick and choose among titles in these collections, creating a Custom Collection that meets their specific needs. All ebrary collections are delivered under a simultaneous, multiuser access model. They integrate with a library's ILS system through MARC records, which ebrary provides at no cost, and the customizable InfoTools menu.

ebrary recently announced that it was chosen to participate in the Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) purchasing program. ebrary will feature the new collections and its other products at the Computers in Libraries conference, which will be held March 16-18 in Washington, D.C.

ebrary also announced that it is seeking pilot customers for its new, server-based technology (code-named "Isaac"), which will ship in 3Q 2005. Isaac will let an institution integrate all the PDF content it owns with the PDF documents it produces and with the PDF content it licenses, while protecting copyrights through a variety of access controls. Additional information is available at http://www.ebrary.com/corp/techIsaac.htm. See also the NewsBreak at http://newsbreaks.infotoday.com/nbreader.asp?ArticleID=16291.
