IPSWICH, Mass. — May 18, 2015 — Claremont Lincoln University, in Southern California, has opted for EBSCO eBooks from EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) to provide students with the perfect collection of subject-specific titles for their research needs. The university selected EBSCO's eBook Business Collection which is offered on an annual subscription basis with unlimited simultaneous user access.

Finding high-quality titles was an important factor in Claremont Lincoln University's search for an e-book vendor. Esteban Aguilar, library consultant at the University, says "EBSCO's Business Collection offered a nice blend of business books that work well for the program offered at our institution. The quality of the titles is high. The books are of scholarly material but not so deep to be incomprehensible to the average user. It is a nice blend of high level and introductory work, which made it an appealing option."

EBSCO's eBook Subscriptions contain large selections of titles across various subject areas to complement any library collection. Packages are offered on an annual subscription basis with unlimited simultaneous user access at a fraction of the cost of purchase. In addition, titles are added to subscription packages frequently at no additional cost.

EBSCO eBooks offers more than 700,000 e-books and audiobooks. EBSCO proactively acquires new content in critical areas, based on the dynamic needs of libraries. Accessing the EBSCOhost platform for e-books and audiobooks saves librarians training time and adds a well-known search platform to the end user's experience. Allowing end users to search for e-books and audiobooks along with their EBSCOhost database content improves the discoverability of library collections.
