ebrary Introduces Perpetual Access Option

ebrary (, a leading information services and technology provider, announced that, in addition to subscription databases of content from leading publishers, it is now offering a growing selection of online books under a perpetual access model. ebrary currently offers thousands of online books under the perpetual access model from publishers including Taylor & Francis, McGraw-Hill, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Brill Academic Publishers. The titles cover a wide range of subject areas geared toward students and professions.

Libraries have two choices for purchasing ebrary's perpetual access titles. They may pay a fee over list price to provide patrons with simultaneous, multi-user access, or pay list price for single-user access. ebrary's single-user access model does not require check-out or check-in like most e-book products on the market. If an online book is available, a patron may instantly access it. If a document is in use, the patron will be placed in a queue and notified once it becomes available. ebrary's online books can be cross-referenced, are full-text searchable, and integrate with a library's ILS system and online subscription databases. Additionally, ebrary provides reporting tools that show how content is being used while protecting end-user privacy.

ebrary also announced that it has added more than 500 titles to its Public Library Complete subscription database and has revised its pricing structure to make it more affordable to the public library community. Libraries subscribe under a tiered pricing structure based on population served.
