Great news from EBSCO at the ALAMW conference this week. At the lunch and learn sessions they announced they are eliminating the legacy NetLibrary fees for eBooks. Here is more information I received from the Senior Director of eBook Products at EBSCO.
Effective February 1, EBSCO will eliminate the legacy NetLibrary fees. This means eBooks on EBSCOhost will simply be the publisher suggested eBook list price. So…
- No markups
- No set up fees
- No annual hosting, platform, access or maintenance fees
- No annual Adobe Content Server subscription fees
- No download fees
- No fee for MARC records
…you get the idea — No Markup. No Fees. No kidding!
And, through March 31st, all eBooks and Audiobooks purchased on EBSCOhost earn a 5% rebate as part of the Grow Your Collection on Us promotion.
eBooks on EBSCOhost can be ordered via YBP (GOBI); Baker & Taylor’s Title Source or by contacting your EBSCO Publishing sales representative.
