Rialto is a comprehensive and neutral e-commerce marketplace for academic resources. It is a single destination for all content types, multiple platforms, and thousands of publishers designed to simplify selection and acquisition workflows across various access models and licenses.
Rialto has taken a collaborative and imaginative approach to longstanding pain points in the selection and acquisition workflow for academic libraries. By working with librarians around the world, we identified the most pressing issues—such as lack of data for decision-making and scattered work processes—and utilized our technology to resolve them. Rather than repairing these processes, Rialto rebuilds them to meet the needs of today's librarians and marketplace, leading to time-saving efficiencies and better coordination among library staff. With Rialto, librarians can make confident purchase decisions and ensure budget is spent effectively to buy what will be used.
ProQuest’s Publisher Digital Marketplace allows libraries to order ebooks and stream videos on their preferred platforms directly through Rialto. When librarians choose to order titles through the digital marketplace (most of which are DRM-free and Unlimited Access), they have access to a variety of popular academic and specialty publishers without leaving the Rialto marketplace. Adding the Publisher Digital Marketplace to Rialto makes it a complete single destination by eliminating the need to purchase separately from each publisher, and simplifies workflow as all e-invoicing is run through ProQuest.
Current publishers and aggregators available in the Digital Marketplace are:
