What's New?

Welcome to the inaugural eBooks on EBSCOhost Medical Libraries newsletter. These newsletters aim to provide information on new and relevant medical collections and titles that are available through EBSCO, and to highlight any technical enhancements and features related to the eBooks on EBSCOhost platform. We hope you'll find value in these newsletters, and we welcome any feedback or suggestions for future editions.


EBSCO has recently signed with two prominent medical eBook publishers: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and HCPro, Inc.

Platform Features

In response to customer feedback, EBSCO has re-introduced the option for users to "Close" an eBook when they are finished viewing it online. This enhancement allows single-user titles to be available for other users before the browser session expires on its own, reducing turnaways and expanding availability of your collection.
