ProQuest Ebook Central - New Platform for a Go-to eBooks Source

A session at INFORUM 2015

Tuesday 26th May, 2015

4:25pm to 4:50pm (CET)

Launching in mid-2015, ProQuest Ebook Central will integrate key elements from both ebrary and EBL – Ebook Library, along with all-new functionality, delivering a next-generation experience for researchers and librarians around the globe.

The patron interface for ProQuest Ebook Central and the ProQuest Ebook Central Reader™will be based on ebrary’s fresh, modern reader. It will span the breadth of patron requirements, from discovery to reading to bookshelf. The reader was recently redesigned, setting a new standard for operability for all users. Device-neutral, the reader offers a robust experience for online reading.

The librarian portal—ProQuest LibCentral™—will be based on EBL’s popular, newly rebuilt LibCentral administrative module. It will support discovery, selection, acquisition, customizable management and analytics of ebooks. LibCentral offers a powerful set of tools to simplify the workflow surrounding ebooks; from streamlined acquisition to customizable administrative tools, support for all access models, real-time usage and expenditure analytics as well as built-in interoperability with key vendors.
