ProQuest is acquiring Ebook Library (EBL). Through the purchase, the company promises to help researchers seamlessly discover content across multiple formats including books, journals, dissertations, newspapers, and video.

ProQuest established its e-book presence in January 2011 by acquiring the aggregator ebrary. Thanks to the acquisition, EBL and ebrary will be combined to 'create the best possible research experience, connecting e-books with the vast array of other content and services offered by ProQuest,' says the company.

EBL's president Kari Paulson will join ProQuest to manage the combined e-book business unit.
