eBooks: ebrary Adds Thousands of Titles to Government Complete Collection, Adds Military Packs

To help government libraries acquire e-books more strategically, ebrary has added thousands of relevant e-books across acquisition models.


Government Complete, ebrary’s affordable subscription database, has been updated with thousands of new e-books from renowned publishers such as American Water Works Association, Cardiotext Publishing, and Urban Institute Press. The database now includes a growing selection of more than 76,000 titles with unlimited, multi-user access. Additionally, ebrary has added over 9,000 new titles from publishers such as American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), and Karger Publishers, that can be purchased outright or through its patron driven acquisition program where titles are only purchased if used.

To make it easier for military libraries to purchase essential titles, ebrary’s on-staff librarians have created two new packs in Traumatic Brain Injury and Prosthetics Research. ebrary’s new Traumatic Brain Injury pack covers TBI from both a physical and psychological point of view and includes publishers such as Oxford University Press, Wiley-Blackwell, Cambridge University Press, Guilford Press, CRC Press, and Springer.

The Prosthetics Research pack encompasses topics such as biomedical materials, amputation, and robotics. Participating publishers include Cambridge University Press, Springer, Elsevier, and F.A. Davis. Both packs feature over 20 titles, with the majority published in the past three years.
