ProQuest Establishes Ebooks Partnership with Irish Booksellers

Sep 16, 2014

ProQuest Ebooks has partnered with O'Mahony's, Irish booksellers and library suppliers, to deliver content from publishers to institutions across Ireland and the UK. This new partnership will enable O'Mahony's customers to purchase over 600,000 ebook titles, which can be chosen title-by-title and then owned outright by the library.

The titles are offered through ProQuest ebook companies ebrary and EBL. O'Mahony's will also be selling ebooks via ebrary and EBL's Demand Driven Acquisition (DDA) models. Founded in 1902, O'Mahony's is a family run Irish business that supplies books to the academic sector and the general public. They are the first Irish company to act as a single source supplier for shelf-ready books and ebooks. This new partnership with O'Mahony's will supply both their historical print collections and now ebooks, leveraging both the ebrary and EBL catalogues, bringing them to the forefront of book selling to Higher and Further Education, governmental and corporate organizations in Ireland.
