From an ebrary press release on July 9, 2012: To assist corporate libraries with strategic e-book acquisition, ebrary®, a ProQuest business, now offers two new subscription products in Employee Development and Human Resources hand-selected by its on-staff librarians. The new databases – and over 20 others – enable corporate libraries to affordably expand access to a critical mass of e-books to researchers and employees around the world with unlimited, multi-user access and offset any hosting fee for titles acquired under other models.
“The new subscription products will enhance our approach to strategic e-book acquisition in which diversifying models is a key ingredient,” said Leslie Lees, ebrary’s Vice President of Content Development. “We believe libraries can achieve the greatest return on their e-book investment by combining subscription products with additional models such as patron driven acquisition, where libraries can offer access to hundreds of thousands of titles and only purchased if they are used, and perpetual archive, where critical titles can be purchased outright.”
ebrary’s new corporate subscriptions in Employee Development and Human Resources serve as essential tools for supporting career skills and growth. The Employee Development database covers topics such as business communication, strategic thinking, and creativity, while the Human Resources collection encompasses recruitment, retention & remuneration, training & development, and corporate culture & diversity.
Additional benefits of acquiring e-books with a subscription through ebrary include the following:
- Continued collection growth
- Dedicated apps for the iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch® and Android™
- DASH!™ (Data Sharing, Fast) for fully searchable digital repositories
- ebrary InfoTools™ turns words into portals to additional knowledge
- COUNTER-compliant usage statistics
- Multiple search and navigation options
- Chapter ranking of search results
- Personal bookshelves
- Highlighting and annotating
- Automatic citations
- RefWorks and EndNote integration
