Find the Perfect Collection of Subject-Specific Titles for Your Library
With hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, EBSCO offers many eBooks and audiobooks covering a diverse range of topics—but who has time to sort through each title to build the right collection? EBSCO makes it easy to discover the titles you’re looking for by organizing eBooks into pre-packaged collections, including Featured Collections, Subject Sets, and eBook and Audiobook Subscriptions. (Titles within collections can also be purchased on an individual basis via ECM, GOBI or OASIS.)
Featured Collections offer titles covering a range of different topic areas from within a particular subject. EBSCO's Collection Development librarians hand-select titles to ensure that these collections contain quality content, and include frontlist titles whenever possible. Titles are owned in perpetuity.
Subject Sets focus on a single topic from within a broader subject, and contain frontlist titles selected by EBSCO's Collection Development team. The Sets allow for quick and easy purchases in particular high-interest subject areas. Titles are owned in perpetuity.
eBook Subscriptions contain large selections of titles across various subject areas to complement any library collection. Packages are offered on an annual subscription basis with unlimited simultaneous user access at a fraction of the cost of purchase. In addition, titles will be added to subscription packages frequently at no additional cost.
Audiobook Subscriptions allow libraries to subscribe to a growing collection of unabridged audiobooks for an annual fee, with titles added throughout the year at no additional cost. Titles are available on an unlimited simultaneous user access model.
EBSCO provides discounts to member libraries of consortia purchasing EBSCO eBooks through special Subject Set collections. These Subject Sets span across a broad range of subject matter—from business-related topics and academic research areas, to medical & nursing collections and education coverage—giving libraries the ability to customize their collection with titles that best suit their users’ needs.
Discounts for these Subject Sets are applied based on the number of consortium that purchase, and member libraries can own their own copy of the title.
