ProQuest has announced a partnership with more than 90 publishers to support libraries in providing unlimited access to Ebook Central holdings for all patrons – at no extra charge. The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is having an unprecedented effect on higher-education institutions across the globe. Many libraries have found they suddenly need to support a new level of distance learning and research – and access to electronic resources is imperative.
ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 will get unlimited access to all owned titles from these publishers through mid-June. This means that all licenses – including single-user and three-user models – have automatically converted to unlimited access for that period, helping librarians bridge the gap for their patrons in this rapidly changing environment. The unlimited access also applies to additional titles purchased through mid-June.
No action is required by librarians to switch on unlimited access – this will be done automatically, and the transition will be seamless for users.
