EBL – Ebook Library

EBL – Ebook Library is a leading global ebook aggregator, serving academic, corporate and research libraries worldwide.  With an impressive catalog of ebook titles from the leading international academic publishers, EBL is well-established as a pioneer of flexible, innovative access models such as Patron-driven Acquisition and the esteemed Non-Linear™ Lending model.

EBL uses technology to make content more accessible to users, not to lock it away with rigid access rules.  EBL pioneered Patron-driven Acquisition models that enable librarians and users to select and add ebooks to the library within the library’s collection development and acquisitions policies and practices.  The Non-Linear™ Lending model allows multiple concurrent access for all titles.

Other features, including a short-term circulation/pay-per-use model, the option to designate chapters for reserve circulation and course packs, and OCLC MARC records for the library’s OPAC, all address unique needs related to providing ebooks for libraries.
