EBSCO will be the supplier for print and electronic periodicals, e-books, and associated subscription management and access services for the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), thanks to a new two-year renewable contract.

The university, which focuses on engineering and science, has approximately 20,000 students and 4,000 employees.

Rune Brandshaug, head of section for information resources at NTNU University Library, explained: 'NTNU is a large university focusing on meeting both students’ and researchers’ need for information. We clearly see that the information world is moving rapidly into the online environment, and our users expect to have easy access to all our resources, regardless of where they are and what device they are using. In addition, our staff resources are limited, and we need to find vendors that can help us work more efficiently. We have chosen EBSCO because they are able to deliver most of the products and services we acquire. By integrating data feeds between different modules we expect that we will have to spend less time updating different systems.'
