For academic writers and all researchers, ebrary just announced they have added an additional 16,000 titles to their database – Academic Complete. Via their e-subscription database ebrary offers one of the world’s largest ebook libraries. With titles from over 500 publishers, their collection is now over 270,000 ebooks.

Ebrary titles are available to virtually all web-enabled devices. Subscribers can create their own “personal bookshelf” and have access to features such as notations, highlighting, moveable folders, and text to speech capabilities. For librarians they offer “on-demand MARC records.”

Titles can be loaned and many are available for purchase. For more information go to Ebrary.
