EBL - Ebook Library, a ProQuest business, has reinvented its LibCentral administrative and acquisitions module. The changes are said to enable libraries to tailor their e-book experience to fit their own and their users’ unique needs.

The new LibCentral claims to help libraries streamline workflows, making discovery, selection, acquisition, and management of ebooks simple. It provides the library granular access and permission settings along with insight into overall collection and demand-driven acquisition usage. It is said to be a substantial step in the integration of ProQuest’s ebook businesses EBL and ebrary, and will become the base of the combined e-book platform.
