Review by CCL-EAR Committee
ebrary, a product offered by ProQuest, is an aggregator of ebooks and journals. The consortium currently offers a product called Community and Career Collection.
While the collection does not include ebooks with perpetual access rights, ebrary’s subscription model allows libraries to have immediate access to a collection of over 23,000 ebooks, all with multiple access rights. The database offers users two different feature-rich reading applications that enhance the online reading experience.
ebrary’s scope, content, and currency make it a good choice for community college libraries.
