Expanded Access to eBooks on EBSCOhost Now Available Through GOBI3

Librarians accustomed to selecting and managing their ebook collections through GOBI3 from YBP Library Services (YBP), the academic division of Baker & Taylor, now have additional access options for the more than 320,000 ebook titles from eBooks on EBSCOhost. EBSCO Publishing and YBP have expanded the EBSCO eBook models that are available in YBP’s acquisition and collection development interface.

EBSCO customers have long been able to order ebooks through GOBI3 using the single user (1U) model. The upgraded access provides more flexibility to library selectors acquiring titles from eBooks on EBSCOhost through GOBI3. In addition to single user, the integration includes three user (3U) and unlimited user (UU) access models, as well as Demand-Driven Acquisitions. Ebooks from EBSCO are all available with no fees and no markups, making it as convenient and cost-effective as possible for librarians adding to their collections.

Mark Kendall, senior vice president of sales at YBP, says, “YBP’s unique value proposition is to build bridges between digital content providers such as EBSCO, publishers, and the libraries and consortia YBP serves. Our work together with EBSCO will provide libraries with more platform choices and flexibility to acquire the content they and their patrons require.”

Since adding eBooks to EBSCOhost, EBSCO has worked to improve access and the availability of titles and options for librarians to choose how collections are developed. Having eBooks on EBSCOhost titles available through GOBI3 allows selectors to view and select eBooks through the library's existing workflow. Librarians will be able to select single user and multi-user access (1U, 3U and UU), as well as choose titles to make available through DDA, allowing libraries to pre-select titles that are only purchased when patron usage determines need.
