EBSCO introduces YBP 'Core' ebook collections

Share this on social media:

EBSCO Information Services is introducing 10 new ebooks collections designed to give academic libraries a simple way to add important titles to their collections.

The YBP U.S. Core Titles Collections and the YBP U.K. Core Titles Collections are each comprised of five subject-related collections of ebooks.
 
Each year, profiling bibliographers from YBP Library Services, which delivers content solutions to academic libraries, compile YBP Core Titles – a list of titles that are considered to be essential. These lists assist academic librarians with identifying the best possible titles to add to their collections each year.
 
The YBP Core Titles Featured Collections include more than 2,800 titles that have been identified as excellent academic titles between 2010 and 2014. Separate collections are available for the U.S. Core Titles list and the U.K. Titles list organized by the following five subjects:

  • Arts and humanities;
  • Medicine;
  • Science and technology;
  • Business and economics; and
  • Social sciences

Publishers include ABC-CLIO, Cambridge University Press, Harvard University Press, John Wiley & Sons, Oxford University Press, Taylor & Francis, and many more university and academic presses.
