The New and Improved EBSCO Information Services
by Barbara Brynko
Tim Collins has been at the helm of EBSCO Publishing for more than a quarter of a century. As founder and president of EBSCO Publishing, Collins has been no stranger to the ebbs and flows involved in the rapidly changing information industry and some rather rough economic times. But experience and business expertise has taught Collins to know when it's time to switch gears to accommodate new markets and to provide better services to its global network of libraries. And in late May, the news of such a shift made headlines as EBSCO Publishing (EP) was merged with EBSCO Information Services (EIS). Both companies were divisions of EBSCO Industries, Inc., one of the largest privately owned businesses in the U.S. The merged companies will now be known as EBSCO Information Services, with Collins as president.

Top Mobile Apps for Productivity
by Paula J. Hane
In last month's Spotlight article, I highlighted some browser extensions that I find to be very useful. The article has proven popular with readers, and I've even benefitted from readers' suggestions. So, now I'd like to cover some of the mobile apps that I've found to be the most helpful. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone running Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), and the apps I'm including here are available for Android devices (at the Google Play Store), and some are also available for Apple iOS at the Apple iTunes store. I trust you will find these to be handy and serve as a starting point to look for others. (If you have others in your toolkit that you'd like to share, let me know.)
