EBSCO in deal with Elsevier to enhance e-book medical collection available via eBooks

An agreement between EBSCO Publishing and Elsevier has significantly enhanced the e-book medical collection available through eBooks on EBSCOhost®. The agreement adds 965 health science titles to EBSCO’s medical e-book collection with over 580 of the titles representing coverage from 2010 to the present.

eBooks on EBSCOhost offers a variety of e-book and audiobook collections for medical research, containing high-quality titles ensuring that researchers find the right material for any of their healthcare needs. The titles from Elsevier, a leading publisher of health and science information, further expands the variety of medical specialties covered in the medical collection including topical areas such as: Pediatrics, Pharmacy, Nursing, Anesthesia, Anatomy/Physiology, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Oncology, Veterinary Medicine, Allied Health, Dentistry, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Surgery, Radiology and others.

The Elsevier titles are available in Subject Sets which provide convenient, prepackaged sets of titles chosen to meet libraries’ needs for new content on popular, in-demand topics. The titles are also available via selection through EBSCOhost® Collection Manager (ECM). ECM can be used to search or browse for e-books and audiobooks by title, author, publisher and more or make selections from the Subject Sets or Featured Collections created by EBSCO’s collection development experts. ECM can also help libraries create and manage lists of titles they want to expose to patron drive acquisition (PDA), manage deposits and determine which ownership models to apply to the various e-books and audiobooks in their collection.
