EBSCO Publishing Integrates 300K Ebooks and Audiobooks Into EBSCOhost

Yesterday EBSCO Publishing announced that its collection of more than 300,000 ebook and audiobook titles were now available via EBSCOhost. All are former titles of NetLibrary, which EBSCO acquired from OCLC in March 2010.

In the announcement, the company said that it would be unveiling new acquisition models—including short-term leases, subscriptions, and expanded patron-driven acquisition (PDA)—later this year.

LJ’s Michael Kelley wrote in detail about the EBSCO ebook and audiobook integration in March 2011, when the company began previewing the unified platform.
