Publishing house McGraw Hill announced today that it is expanding its digital offerings to libraries, by offering an enhanced purchasing program for its eBook library. They call the new purchasing alternative their “perpetual access” program.
The publisher’s eBook library includes nearly 2,000 titles, and is continuously updated. McGraw Hill says academic libraries will be interested in reference works, and public libraries will find “a wealth of titles” on careers and business skills, student and career exam study guides and “How to Do Everything” books on consumer technology.
“In a fast-changing environment, McGraw-Hill Professional continues to provide new ways to deliver our content and respond to our customers’ needs,” said Philip Ruppel , president of McGraw-Hill Education International and Professional. “Our enhanced perpetual access program is another way to ensure that libraries around the world have all of the options they need to build eBook collections to best serve their patrons.”
With the publisher’s eBook library, users can access hundreds of thousands of pages of content in engineering, computing, medical, business and student study aid categories.
