ProQuest Enriches Ebook Central Platform User Experience

Oct 11, 2017


ProQuest says it has teamed with students and other researchers to make the experience of using the Ebook Central platform more efficient, effective, and valuable. The ebook platform has enhanced its book detail pages to boost usability with simplified workflows, more chapter-level capabilities, and improved file naming conventions that make it easy to organize downloaded resources.

The companys says libraries that offer Ebook Central will deliver an enriched experience to their users. For example, users can now connect to the exact content that is important to research or classwork—at both the chapter and subchapter level—allowing them to make better use of the ebooks available on the platform. The book detail pages feature detailed availability, descriptive and bibliographic information. Tables of contents can be expanded to quickly view chapter subsections and zero in on the section of the ebook needed.

Once users find the chapter or subsection they need, they can read online or download a DRM-free file using a new streamlined login process. New automatic file naming conventions mirror book and chapter titles and help users keep track of the content that they download.
