eBrary soon to offer a self-service publishing platform

12 Jan 2010 | | No Comment

According to LibraryJournal.com eBook provider ebrary is soon to release a portion of its platform to subscribers of its Academic Complete product.

According to Kevin Sayar, ebrary president, “it’s a simple progression of what we do naturally”: ingest PDFs and enable additionally valuable features, all in a cost-effective manner. “It allows [subscribers] to make content accessible to themselves and the public,” he told LJ. Libraries can choose to make local content available only to students and faculty or the users of a select group of institutions or leave it unrestricted.

Titled as DASH! — meaning data sharing, as per the other ebrary PDFs — you’ll be able to search and view them using the online QuickView reader.
