ebrary, a ProQuest business, has announced that it is expanding its support of strategic e-book acquisition with a new three-user licence model for perpetual archive titles. The aim is to provide an additional layer of flexibility for libraries between its single-user and unlimited multi-user access options. Multi-user access, whether unlimited or three-user, is now available for over 68 percent of ebrary's perpetual titles from publishers such as Taylor & Francis, SUNY Press, Wiley and University of Edinburgh Press.
ebrary's three-user model is integrated with not only its own patron driven acquisition and Extended Access models, but also with YBP's GOBI for firm orders as well as demand-driven acquisition. This is seen to provide streamlined ordering for the library and a seamless experience for end-users, maximising the return on a library's e-book investment.
ebrary claims to help customers to acquire e-books strategically through a three step approach: Transition, Diversify and Streamline. The company believes that by challenging the e-book status quo, organisations can effectively serve the diverse and growing needs of researchers and maximise their budgets.
