Attention Libraries – Discounted eBooks – backlist titles 50% off

August 13th, 2009 · by spolanka · No Comments

I’ve resisted posting information about sales and specials from various publishers and aggregators for fear of favoritism, but this eBook deal is pretty good, crosses many publishers, and could save libraries lots of money (which is the main reason I’ll post it).  If other aggregators have similar announcements, I’ll be glad to post those in order to be fair.  Here are the details:


August 13, 2009 – Palo Alto, CA, USA – ebrary®, a leading provider of digital content products and technologies, today announced a first-of-its-kind program that brings libraries, corporations, and other organizations the best cost savings of the year on full-text e-books from the world’s leading publishers.

Under the Publisher Half-Off Sale, institutions around the globe can save 50% off list price when they purchase as few as 15 to 25 backlist titles from a single participating publisher through December 15, 2009. The vast majority of these titles are unavailable in Academic Complete or other ebrary subscription products. To date, Cambridge University Press, Elsevier, IGI Global, Springer, Taylor & Francis, University of North Carolina Press, and Wiley have joined the program, with additional publishers expected to participate shortly.

“In these tough economic times, ebrary is proud to offer a unique opportunity for libraries, corporations, and other organizations to purchase and own authoritative content at discounted rates from such an esteemed group of renowned publishers,” said Leslie Lees, Vice President of Content Development at ebrary. “At the same time, we are pleased to provide participating publishers with new revenue opportunities for their backlist selections.”

Current publisher discounts include the following. For a real-time listing of participating publishers and additional information, please visit http://www.ebrary.com/corp/promos.jsp#publisher.
