ProQuest has joined forces with Wiley to make ebooks on the Wiley Online Library platform available for purchase via OASIS. The OASIS search, selection, and acquisition system already provides access to the largest ebook selection in the market via the EBL, ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Ebook Central ebook platforms, as well as the EBSCO platform. ProQuest says new titles are added twice a month. Titles span eight subject areas including Health and Medical Sciences, Life and Earth Sciences, Math and Statistics, and Chemistry.
OASIS says it is adding ebook platforms from a variety of publishers this month, including Oxford University Press and IGI Global. Discussions are also underway regarding partnerships with other key academic publishers, including Taylor & Francis Group, Cambridge University Press, and World Scientific.
OASIS is ProQuest’s free web-based system for searching, selecting, and ordering print and electronic books for academic libraries. Through OASIS, users not only receive access to the broadest title database in the industry but also benefit from powerful search, profiling, collection management, and reporting tools.
