ebrary's Database Product
Our Dynamic Content Platform (DCP)T integrates patent-pending software with a growing collection of more than 60,000 full-text, digital books and other authoritative content from more than 200 leading academic, STM, and professional publishers. ebrary's DCP features the ebrary ReaderT, which optimizes online viewing and navigation, and InfoToolsT, which seamlessly links search queries to multiple online databases and information on the Web.
Some of the unique benefits of ebrary's model include:
. ACCESS to thousands of full-text titles via annual or multi- year subscription model
. SIMULTANEOUS multiple-user model guarantees each patron's access to every title 24/7 - no turn-away, timeout, or checkout limitations
. OPTIMIZED on-line searching including full-text, subject browse, Boolean, proximity and federated options
. GROWING databases of high quality monograph content - new titles are added monthly at no extra cost to your library - ebrary collections grew 60% in 2004

- ebrary's EDF technology delivers the PDF books to the user's desktop
quickly one page at a time
