From an ebrary press release: To make it easier for libraries to keep their e-book collections current and timely, ebrary®, a leading provider of e-books and research technology, today announced the commencement of its “Topic of the Week” program. Each week, ebrary’s on-staff librarians will select important topics and highlight relevant e-books on the ebrary website (www.ebrary.com). Anyone may freely browse these e-books using ebrary Title Preview™, and libraries have the option of purchasing individual titles at a discount with minimum order.
This week’s topic is Egypt, featuring e-books such as Egypt (Middle East: Region in Transition), by Laura S. Etheredge (Britannica Educational Publishing, 2011). Additional titles on Egypt may be previewed at www.ebrary.com.
Once purchased, Topic of the Week titles can be seamlessly integrated with other ebrary products including Academic Complete™, ebrary’s award-winning subscription e-book database that offers unlimited access to a growing selection of more than 52,000 multi-disciplinary titles, as well as other perpetual access titles and e-books acquired through Patron Driven Acquisition.
