ebrary Launches New Database Collections and the Sale of eBooks

ebrary announced the availability of new database collections with over 20,000 books and other documents from more than 150 academic, trade, and professional publishers. ebrary's Aggregated Collections now cover Business & Economics, Computers, Technology & Engineering, Humanities, Life & Physical Sciences, and Social & Behavioral Sciences.  The company also offers a strong collection of Spanish-language titles and aggregated collections specifically for both academic and public libraries. The Publisher Collections are from Byron Hoyt (more than 5,000 classical sheet music titles), Society of Manufacturing Engineers (over 4,000 books, journals, and technical papers), and Octavo (more than 30 rare and original manuscripts).

ebrary's database collections enable simultaneous, multiuser access, feature advanced research tools and integrate with existing ILS systems and digital resources, with full MARC records provided. ebrary's technology turns every word in every document into a highly interactive experience.

The company also announced a selection of hundreds of individual eBooks--for libraries that prefer to purchase and own individual titles and provide "check out" options where only certain numbers of students or patrons can access a title at a given time (this is similar to netLibrary).
