“A year after acquiring NetLibrary from OCLC, EBSCO Publishing is releasing a preview of eBooks on EBSCOhost. The preview will allow librarians and end users to see how their library’s collection of eBook titles from EBSCO/NetLibrary is being integrated into EBSCOhost, allowing for a more comprehensive and powerful search experience. Current customers will be able to explore their own eBook collections on EBSCOhost. The preview is designed to showcase the look and feel of eBooks on EBSCOhost and provide a live environment for librarians and users to test and trial the functionality.”
EBSCOhost libraries will be able to access the preview site through the Try New Features link on EBSCOhost. NetLibrary users will see a banner with the link on the NetLibrary interface. A link to a survey will be included on the preview, and results will be monitored during the preview period which will end with the migration from NetLibrary to EBSCOhost in July.
