In honor of National Library Week, April 10-16, 2005, ebrary, an information services and technology provider, has announced that it is offering American Library Association (ALA) members free access to a collection of more than 55 library science titles for a one-year term. ebrary has also announced that it has partnered with the Southeastern Library Network (SOLINET) to distribute the ebrary Dynamic Content Platform (DCP) to SOLINET's member libraries.

The library science titles collection is integrated with the American Libraries digital archive, available immediately at http://site.ebrary.com/lib/ala. Published by ALA, American Libraries is a trade magazine available to all ALA members. Both the American Libraries digital archive and ebrary's Library Science collection are delivered using ebrary's Dynamic Content Platform (DCP). ebrary's DCP combines content with research technology including the ebrary Reader, which is designed to optimize page-by-page viewing of PDF documents, and InfoTools, which links search queries to multiple online databases and information on the Web.

ebrary has also announced a partnership with the Southeastern Library Network (SOLINET) to distribute the ebrary Dynamic Content Platform (DCP) to SOLINET's member libraries at discounted pricing. The partnership is intended to bring SOLINET members an affordable solution for providing their patronage with content and research technology, while enabling ebrary to promote its products to the southeastern U.S. library market. SOLINET is a non-profit membership organization serving libraries of all types and sizes in ten Southeastern states and the Caribbean. Primary programs are Member Services, OCLC Services, Preservation & Access, Electronic Databases, Library Products, Digital Services, Educational Services, and Consulting.
