NetLibrary’s Name Change

September 16, 2011 at 2:41 pm Leave a comment

The ebook database NetLibrary has changed its name to ‘eBook Collection’. Currently, the database is available via the Library’s Research Databases page under both names. At the end of the Fall 2011 semester, the NetLibrary listing will be removed from the list of databases. At that point the database will only be listed as ‘eBook Collection (Ebsco)’.

Why did the name change?

Just as in any other business environment, there are occasionally mergers and acquisitions in the library and information industry. The ebook collection NetLibrary was recently purchased by EBSCO (see this story for details). As part of this acquisition EBSCO has decided to change the name of this collection from ‘NetLibrary’ to ‘eBook Collection’ as part of its effort to further integrate the collection into its brand.

eBook Collection / NetLibrary is a database containing thousands of full-text books, many of which can be downloaded. The collection covers a variety of subject areas and is searchable. The transition to the EBSCO platform provides an interface that will be familiar to many of the Library’s users. If you haven’t looked at this collection before, give it a try today!
