Ingram Content Group Expands E-Book Profiling on OASIS Library Platform
Ingram Content Group Inc., today announced it will expand the e-book profiling capabilities available to libraries on its OASIS platform with the integration of content from other publisher platforms and e-book aggregators.
Libraries can currently select EBSCO titles from Ingram’s OASIS platform for firm order purchase. In February, libraries will also have the ability to include EBSCO e-book content in their approval, slip and Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) programs.
Profiling and PDA tools for additional aggregators are expected to be added in the 1st quarter of 2014.
“Through our work with EBSCO, libraries have access to one of the most comprehensive collections of e-books, and soon will have enhanced title profiling tools to drill down and find the relevant content they’re looking for,” said Dan Sheehan, Vice President and General Manager, Ingram Library Services.
