Cengage Learning and EBL eTextbook Pilot is now live

July 31, 2014 – 10:50 am

ACU Library is participating in this pilot & we have purchased 3 copies of each of the 7 titles – which means that we have a 9 concurrent user license for each title.

This is a first step to gather valuable information about the performance of eTextbooks in libraries.

In collaboration with Cengage Learning, EBL and ProQuest are pleased to launch an exclusive etextbook pilot during 2014, only for ANZ libraries.  There are seven core etexts selected for participation in this pilot.  Using the EBL platform technology, the model is 3-User and 3x list price for a single e-textbook.  The purchase and access of these eTextbooks is EXCLUSIVE to EBL only.

Many of these are already adopted textbooks at your university, but none of them have been available in ebook format.

The pilot list is:

The Road to Social Work and Human Service Practice – Chenoweth/McAuliffe
An Introduction to Language – Fromkin/Rodman/Hyams/Collins/Amberber/Cox
Principles of Microeconomics – Gans/King/Mankiw
Effective Teaching Strategies : Lessons from Research and Practice, ANZ edition – Killen
Teaching Primary Science Constructively – Skamp
Understanding Nutrition : ANZ edition – Whitney/Rolfes/Crowe/Cameron-Smith/Walsh
Clinical Psychomotor Skills : Assessment Tools for Nursing Students, ANZ edition – Tollefson
