EBSCO Publishing is transitioning its ebook titles to EBSCOhost, for availability starting in July of this year. Corporations will be able to make their ebooks and research materials more accessible to researchers through a more powerful search experience. Ebooks will be searchable through EBSCOhost, learning management systems, and corporate portals.
EBSCO will offer featured collections of ebooks for corporations. Core collections include titles on leadership, planning, business success, and EBSCO's Business Book Summaries, while the Featured collections include ebooks on finance, ecommerce, green technologies, and human resources. A collection for the IT Center includes mobile technologies, databases, computer science, security, and web development titles.
Corporate libraries can participate in the service by purchasing one-user, three-user, or unlimited-user models, or through a patron-driven acquisition purchasing model. EBSCO is also offering a lease model, through which libraries can acquire titles for a short period of time.
