“To provide libraries with the greatest return on investment, we need to understand usage and continue to build complementary business models and technologies that deliver the greatest value...This is not something that ebrary can accomplish alone. It needs to be a collaborative effort between libraries, publishers, book vendors, and other business units within the broader ProQuest organization. Together, we can empower researchers.”
ebrary®, a ProQuest business, today announced that 45% of its customers are diversifying acquisition models to provide their researchers with a breadth and depth of high-quality, relevant e-books. Many customers subscribe to Academic Complete™ as an affordable base collection with unlimited access and continued growth and expand the collection with other models including patron driven acquisition, perpetual archive, and short-term loans. Academic Complete is the industry’s first and most scholarly subscription product with over 75,000 titles.
