ProQuest has added 6,000 ebooks from Taylor&Francis to the Academic Complete® collection. Focused on offering a balance of quality and quantity, the pioneering subscription now offers unlimited, multi-user access to a growing selection of more than 150,000 ebooks from the world's leading publishers.

Carefully curated by on-staff librarians, Academic Complete provides a critical base of scholarly content in all disciplines and includes content from more University Presses than any other subscription.

With its breadth of content, intuitive user interface, customisable, and detailed usage reports, Ebook Central delivers an unmatched, end-to-end ebook experience.

Patron Analytics takes the guesswork out of who is using the library and for what purpose, enabling libraries to balance both budget and patron demand. Further, Academic Complete customers can leverage a new and improved Book Display Widget to visually promote ebooks of their choice - from any vendor - on their web pages, catalogue, Facebook pages, blogs and other digital display areas, driving discovery and usage.

Project MUSE expands its relationship with Google Scholar to implement Campus Activated Subscriber Access
- 16 Oct 2017

Project MUSE, the trusted source for humanities and social science content from university presses and scholarly publishers, has expanded its relationship with Google Scholar to include implementation of Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA), providing seamless access to subscribed or purchased content for an institution's users even when off campus or from a mobile device.

An extension of Google Scholar's Subscriber Links service, CASA makes note of a user's institutional affiliation when they access content from an authorised on-campus location, and then enables continued access to their library's MUSE journal and book holdings from home or when using a device not connected to the institution's network.

CASA makes it easy for students and researchers to access MUSE content from anywhere without the need for proxy/VPN or other off-campus authentication systems that can act as a barrier between users and the rich scholarly materials their library holds. CASA helps libraries provide their users with the most immediate access to acquired content while supporting licensing agreements. MUSE's participating publishers will benefit from users having frictionless access to the content on the MUSE platform, encouraging and increasing usage of the authorised versions.

No action is required by the subscribing institution to enable CASA; users utilising Google Scholar will, once their affiliation is recorded from on-campus, experience seamless access to their library's licensed MUSE content at home and on mobile. Users periodically refresh their CASA affiliation by visiting Google Scholar from a campus location, and usage of MUSE articles and book chapters facilitated by CASA is included in an institution's COUNTER statistics.

Royal Society of Chemistry to sell Portland Press journals content
- 16 Oct 2017

The Royal Society of Chemistry and Portland Press, the wholly-owned publishing arm of the Biochemical Society, have announced a partnership enabling the Royal Society of Chemistry to sell Portland Press journals content.

According to Dan Dyer, commercial director at the Royal Society of Chemistry, with the strategic alliance of the two societies, customers will benefit by having a single sales contact to discuss all their chemistry and biochemistry content requirements. Working collaboratively in this way will benefit the whole community, by extending content offering into each other's respective markets.

Portland Press is dedicated to promoting and sharing scientific research. Through this partnership, the Press will seek to further expose its journals to a wider market.
