ebrary Offers Free Ebook Collection on Cyber Bullying

According to the National Crime Prevention Council, 43% of teens have been the victims of cyber bullying in the past year. To help parents, educators, and others better understand, prevent, and take action against this growing concern, ebrary is offering a free open access collection of ebooks on Cyber Bullying. ebrary will also enable other organizations to contribute materials as long as they have copyrights.

“As an internet company and content provider, we feel it is our duty to help the community better understand important issues such as cyber bullying,” said Christopher Warnock, CEO of ebrary. “By subsidizing authoritative materials from our trusted publishing partners and enabling others to upload and integrate their own critical information, we hope to provide a valuable resource for anyone who wants to address this growing problem.”

ebrary’s Cyber Bullying Searchable Information Center includes such titles as Click, Click, Who's Really There?: Protect Your Family from Online Predators, Pedophiles, Privacy Loss and More, by Koh (LHK Publishing, LLC, 2006); Bullying Prevention and Intervention: Realistic Strategies for Schools, by Susan Swearer (Guilford Press, 2009); and Keep Your Kids Safe on the Internet, by Simon Johnson (McGraw-Hill, 2004). It also includes a growing selection of documents uploaded by ebrary employees from authoritative sites including the Pew Internet & American Life Project, U.S. Department of Justice, and other agencies. ebrary encourages organizations to upload their own relevant materials, right from their computers, with DASH! (Data Sharing, Fast)—a feature of many ebrary subscription ebook products.

The Cyber Bullying Searchable Information Center is just one of a growing number of open access collections created by ebrary employees and customers with DASH! For a listing of additional, freely available collections please visit http://www.ebrary.com/corp/accessCollections.jsp.
