Promotion for libraries to create more space by replacing print books with e-books

Library Enhancement: Convert Print Books to E-Books

By IGI Global on Mar 17, 2017
Is Technology Helping Young People to Learn Faster?IGI Global is pleased to announce a new campaign to assist libraries with their transition from print to e-books. The IGI Global e-resources team will partner with libraries to set up their IGI Global print titles as complimentary access on the award-winning InfoSci-platform. This special initiative will help propel libraries forward by providing the resources for libraries to remain current in an industry that is constantly evolving.

As part of this new initiative, IGI Global will partner with libraries to help them fully utilize their digital reference collections with RSS feeds, customized LibGuides and newsletters for their research community. Credits toward database purchases, such as InfoSci-Books (3,413+ e-books) and InfoSci-Journals (164+ journals), are available to assist libraries with increasing their information science and technology content. All IGI Global e-books are provided as PDF and XML to unlimited users. There is also no Digital Rights Management (DRM), which makes the transition to the digital reference title more valuable.

IGI Global currently partners with over 3,000 libraries in 160 countries for its e-resources program. Many libraries find the use of IGI Global e-books as essential for bringing peer-reviewed reference content to researchers and students, while not taking up space in their physical building. Creating more shelf space is a key component in library upgrades because it allows the added space to be utilized in a more productive manner such as study rooms, consultation rooms and/or hackerspaces. Freeing shelf space is also deeming more cost effective for libraries experiencing substantial budget constraints.

As an active advocate and supporter of the librarian community, IGI Global offers a Library Technology Innovation Profile Series, which highlights librarians who are bringing innovative technology programs to their institutions. IGI Global also has an established partnership with Against the Grain for their innovation series.
