EBSCO Partners with Ingram

As part of a continuing commitment to make eBooks available regardless of a library's selector workflow, Ingram and EBSCO have signed an agreement to make EBSCO the first outside eBook provider to be incorporated into OASIS. The first phase of the OASIS implementation will make EBSCO eBooks available to academic libraries; EBSCO and Ingram will be making a joint announcement with details shortly—stay tuned!

Technical Developments

Short-Term Loans on EBSCOhost Collection Manager

EBSCO is pleased to announce that a Short-Term Loan option is now available through EBSCOhost Collection Manager (ECM)—instead of purchasing a title on a Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) list outright when activated, users can gain temporary access to the title via a short-term loan at a fraction of the list price.

This also means that libraries now have new customization options for PDA collections:

  • Update your "traditional" PDA collection to trigger short-term loans
  • Establish a loan limit to control how many loan copies any one book can generate
  • Set up a PDA to automatically purchase a title after users have triggered a specified number of short-term loans ("Loan-to-Own")

To view tutorials or to sign up for free training, visit the EBSCO support site.

 

Enhancements to EBSCOhost Collection Manager

EBSCO has recently released a new version of ECM that features significant enhancements, including:

  • Support for short-term loan/"Loan-to-Own" options (detailed above)
  • A new interface design to simplify the eBook purchasing experience
  • Support for P.O. numbers on ECM orders

If you would like to sign up for training on the new ECM, please visit http://training.ebsco.com.
