OCLC is pleased to offer a more cost effective way to increase the
quality and size of your library’s eBook collection. We’ve
partnered with Regional Service Providers and consortia to provide the
NetLibrary East Collection.
The NetLibrary East Collection features high-demand subject areas such
as Social Science, Business, Medicine, Literature, Psychology, and
Education, and includes content from 2005 to present. All titles in the
collection are hand selected by the collection development team.

· Greater depth and breadth of content accessible
· Increased simultaneous accesses
· New pricing model that includes early participation discounts
· All content is frontlist
Early Participation Discounts
