ebrary Releases Extended Access

ebrary, a ProQuest business, announced the release of Extended Access for titles purchased under a single-user license. Extended Access reduces up-front costs to the library, eliminates speculative purchases of multiple copies, and prevents turn-aways when titles are in use.

There are a number of ways that libraries can purchase ebooks from ebrary: They can buy individual titles and packs outright, automate purchases through their e-approval plans, and buy titles that are triggered based on usage through patron-driven acquisition.  

With Extended Access, libraries can now purchase titles more cost-effectively under a single-user license and ensure access. If a title is in use, and another researcher needs it, the library can upgrade to a multiuser access model when available, purchase another copy, or take a short-term loan. The process can be automated and seamless to end users, or libraries can receive email notifications and trigger the additional purchases themselves.

Extended Access also provides an advantageous way for libraries to complement their Academic Complete subscription with perpetual archive titles. Academic Complete, ebrary’s flagship subscription product named as a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title, has always offered simultaneous, multiuser access and now includes more than 75,000 scholarly ebooks. The thousands of libraries throughout the world who use Academic Complete as their base collection can now more affordably purchase additional titles with access on-demand.
