Admins: How ebrary decides what goes in subscription collections such as Academic Complete

A team of ProQuest librarians, along with a global advisory board of librarians, work to ensure ebrary’s subscription collections provide content quality with real customer value.
Academic Complete, ebrary’s flagship subscription collection, is comprised of academic, scholarly, cross-disciplinary, and professional titles representing a broad range of publishers and topics, and is geared specifically to students enrolled in 4-year colleges and universities.
To build relevant subscription collections, ebrary draws on:
  • Customer and user-focused needs
  • Usage and sales data
  • Competitive analysis
  • Unique content and workflow value
  • Industry analysis of key trends such as graduation rates and emerging subjects per degree program
The goal of ebrary’s subscription collections is to deliver essential foundational knowledge that facilitates academic research workflow and outcomes.
