ebrary to Add Electronic Reproductions of Historical Documents

ebrary, Inc. (http://www.ebrary.com) has announced that DSI Publishing Group, a division of Digital Scanning, Inc. (http://www.digitalscanning.com), a provider of conversion and scanning services, will make its collection of early-American history reproductions available online through ebrary.com. The initiative should benefit history buffs, researchers, and Internet users worldwide and enable DSI to quickly, cost-effectively, and securely tap the digital publishing market.

"DSI Publishing adds enormous value to ebrary.com," said Christopher Warnock, CEO of ebrary. "With electronic facsimiles of quality works such as Reuben Gold Thwaite's 1904 edition of The Original Journals of Lewis and Clark and George Catlin's North American Indians, DSI will help us achieve our goal of providing the most comprehensive collection of authoritative and valuable content available on the Internet."

ebrary is creating an online collection of books, journals, periodicals, and digitally archived materials, most of which have never before been available on the Web. Searching and viewing ebrary.com content will be free—there are no subscription or membership fees. ebrary.com patrons will only pay to copy or print the specific paragraphs, pages, or chapters they need, similar to a photocopy model. ebrary will share these revenues with publishers and copyright holders. The company was founded in February 1999, but the service has not yet launched.
