ProQuest Expands to Include ebrary Ebooks in Discovery

Jun 28, 2011

ProQuest linked ebrary's search platform to its own, which enables users to discover multiple formats from multiple content sources. Leveraging tools from both platforms, users can discover search results that include ebrary's ebook content along with ProQuest's relevant reports, videos, and articles, and access the full text of the result from either source.

The first release of the new platform is being deployed in libraries around the world, and it supports discovery of the more than 70,000 titles in ebrary's Academic Complete ebook database. Discovery capabilities of ebrary's entire selection of more than 250,000 ebooks are expected in another release later this year. Work to connect the two platforms began upon ProQuest's acquisition of ebrary in January 2011.
