Swets has signed a deal with JSTOR, the digital library of journals, books and primary sources, to make all of their eBook titles available to order directly through its SwetsWise platform. Over 20,000 current and backlist books are available in the Books through JSTOR program. This adds a wealth of high-quality additional content into the already extensive SwetsWise catalog.
"We're delighted to welcome JSTOR books into the SwetsWise catalog," said Linda Vendryes, Global Business Development Manager for Swets. "JSTOR is one of the most well-known and widely used scholarly resources. Adding Books at JSTOR titles into our platform strengthens our position as the premier partner for libraries looking to simplify the selection and acquisition of eBook content."
"JSTOR is committed to delivering great content to researchers–an objective shared by publishers and libraries," said Frank Smith, Director of Books at JSTOR. "Making Books at JSTOR titles available to order directly via SwetsWise will make it easier to locate and purchase books of interest and make them available to library end users in an efficient manner that suits libraries' internal workflows."
In SwetsWise, Swets customers gain access to the industry's largest one-stop shop of eBook publishers and aggregators.
