Company News: A 10 Year Anniversary and More Than 100 New Publishers at ebrary

Accessing ebooks via a library continues to expand both in terms of content and new users gaining access to full text ebook databases. These days it can be easy to forget that some of the providers of ebooks to libraries have been around for a long time. Here’s one example.

From an ebrary Announcement:

This year marks the 10th anniversary of its flagship product, Academic Complete, the original scholarly e-book subscription collection, now used in thousands of university libraries worldwide.

[During 2012]  more than 100 new publishers added to the ebrary platform, significantly building its e-book catalog.

New ebrary partners include:

+ Nova Science
+ Hackett Publishing

The Academic Complete database currently provides access to more than 80,000 ebook titles. Overall, the company ebrary partners with more than 500 publishers.

Btw, while ebrary’s Academic Complete product is marking ten years, ebrary was founded 14 years ago. In ‘ebook years’ that’s probably close to several centuries. (-:
