To help K-12 libraries acquire ebooks more strategically, ebrary, a ProQuest business, has added hundreds of ebooks across acquisition models. The database now includes a growing selection of more than 8,500 titles with unlimited, multi-user access and a wealth of information in professional development and training resources. Almost 4,500 titles in the database have relevance to state, national or provincial curriculum standards – with coverage of all common core subjects – including English Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, Social Studies, Health and Physical Education. Additionally, ebrary has added over 3,000 new titles that can be purchased outright or through its patron driven acquisition program where titles are only purchased if used. Many of these titles are also eligible for short-term loan.

To further align with Common Core Standards and make it easier for librarians to purchase those essential titles, ProQuest’s K-12 editorial experts have created a new off-the-shelf pack in Common Core Math Standards using a proprietary software application that aligns content to curriculum. The perpetual pack includes publishers such as Math Solutions Publications, MIT Press, Nomad Press, SAGE Publications Inc. (US), and World Scientific Publishing Co.
