BioOne and CSIRO Publishing Expand Partnership with New eBook Collection


A newly curated collection of more than 200 eBooks will be available on the BioOne Digital Library in 2024 through an extension of BioOne’s partnership with CSIRO Publishing, an editorially independent business unit of CSIRO, Australia’s National Science Agency.

Through this collaboration BioOne will make available a specialized collection of CSIRO Publishing catalog titles specifically selected to complement BioOne’s areas of focus, invaluable resources for environmental, plant and animal scientists, and researchers, practitioners, and students in related disciplines. The strength of this eBook curation is the diversity of content relevant to BioOne customers, covering decades of trusted knowledge. Representing unique species from Australia, as well as outcomes of key research with global applications, the collection will enhance the depth and breadth of any library. The CSIRO Publishing BioSelect Collection will be available for cost-effective institutional license under a one-time purchase model beginning in mid-2024.

“We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with BioOne to now include an eBook Collection,” said Briana Melideo, Books Publisher, CSIRO Publishing. “This collection represents decades of trusted knowledge, through a curation of titles offering a broad range of biological subject matter. The content represents not only unique Australian flora and fauna but also globally relevant conservation science and applications. We are thrilled to see these titles reach a wide audience through this partnership with BioOne.”

“We’re proud to expand our partnership with CSIRO Publishing to bring their important research to the libraries and institutions we serve,” said BioOne Director of Sales and Community Outreach, Christine Orr. “This project, the second collection from our BioOne eBooks program, demonstrates our commitment to collaboration with our publisher partners and our shared vision to find new sustainable pathways to advance the biological sciences.”
