ProQuest has collaborated with Talis, a SAGE Publishing Company, to integrate ProQuest Ebook Central® platform pricing and holdings data into Talis Aspire, a tool used by libraries to create and manage resource lists to support university curriculum.
Using Talis Aspire, faculty can create reading lists for their courses and send the lists to the library for review and purchase. Now, when a requested book is available through the ProQuest Ebook Central platform, Talis Aspire will display prices, available access models and information on what the library already owns, avoiding duplication.
To further simplify the library workflow, Talis Aspire will also include a link to the book’s full record in LibCentral, the Ebook Central administrative portal, where librarians can immediately make a purchase.
