ebrary Announces New Ebook Solution for Medical Libraries

ebrary, a ProQuest business that has developed a new strategic approach to ebook acquisition based on three steps: Transition, Diversify, and Streamline, announced a solution specifically for medical libraries that includes new packs in Nursing & Allied Health, Medicine, and Psychology & Social Work. The new, discounted packs include essential ebooks from publishers such as Informa Healthcare, F.A. Davis Company, and Oxford University Press that are purchased outright under a perpetual archive model. 

By combining the packs with other models including subscription, patron-driven acquisition, and short-term loan, medical libraries can achieve the greatest return on their ebook investment. Medical libraries can order titles directly from ebrary, or they may streamline the ordering process through ebrary partners such as YBP.

“As many medical libraries are facing budget challenges, and there is greater demand among researchers, strategic ebook acquisition is becoming a necessity,” said Kevin Sayar, president and general manager of ebrary. “To affordably acquire a breadth and depth of quality e-books, medical libraries can now take advantage of multiple acquisition models. In many cases, diversifying models will be the only way to keep pace with the growing number of books that are being published electronically.”
