COVID-19 NEWS: 'Coronavirus-Impacted Libraries Get Unlimited Access to Ebook Central Holdings'
ProQuest joined forces with 50-plus publishers “to support libraries in providing unlimited access to Ebook Central holdings for all patrons—at no extra charge. … ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 will get unlimited access to all owned titles from these publishers through mid-June. This means that all licenses—including single-user and three-user models—will automatically convert to unlimited access during that period, helping librarians bridge the gap for their patrons in this rapidly changing environment. The unlimited access also applies to additional titles purchased through mid-June.”
For more information and the list of participating publishers, read the blog post.
