E-book provider ebrary has announced that is expanding its non-English language offerings with a new e-book subscription database—the ebrary Nordic Collection—as well as the addition of recently acquired content from a handful of German publishers.
Officials say the Nordic Collection will include more than 1,300 titles from over 30 publishers at launch but will grow to offer over 2,000 e-books in the coming months. As its title suggests, the offering will feature content from and about the Nordic Region in Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish languages. Contributing publishers include Aarhus University Press, Copenhagen Business School Press, Folkuniversitetets Akademiska Press, Nordic Academic Press, Nordic Council of Ministers’ Publishing House, Roskilde Universitetsforlag, Stockholms universitets forlag, and the University of Wisconsin Press.
Content from German publishers includes scholarly monographs from publishers including Verlag C.H. Beck, W.Bertelsmann Verlag (WBV), and Frank & Timme.
ebrary officials say libraries may combine the Nordic Collection with Academic Complete, ebrary’s flagship offering.
