These Subject Sets have been added to an already extensive list of frontlist titles in collections created by EBSCO's Collection Development team. The Sets allow for quick and easy purchases in particular high-interest subject areas. There is no title overlap across Sets, and no title overlap from year to year, so there is never duplication between Sets.

EBSCO eBooks offers over 400,000 e-books and audiobooks. EBSCO proactively acquires new content in critical areas, based on the dynamic needs of libraries.
