Recently, ProQuest launched ProQuest Ebook Central™. The development of Ebook Central was driven by rigorous analysis of librarian and researcher ebook workflows. Along with ongoing market surveys, the research examined acquisition trends, ebook use by subject, user routines, and user frustrations with ebooks.
The result is a platform that improves the experience for librarians and researchers.
The platform features:
- Responsive design
- Note-taking, highlighting, and instant citations
- Offline reading options, including DRM-free chapters and full book downloads
The platform is built upon a core of authoritative, scholarly content:
- Over 785,000 titles
- 1,350 imprints
- 650 publishers
- 100,000 newly published titles added each year
The content is supported by LibCentral™, a powerful administrative and acquisition engine. LibCentral streamlines librarian workflows and eliminates redundant, tedious tasks.
For customers, over the next six to nine months, the ebrary and EBL platforms will be upgraded to Ebook Central.
