Ebrary Announces Company News

Article excerpt

ebrary has announced the commercial availability of ebrarian, a solution for channel partners that will enable online organizations to increase profitability and Web site traffic. In other news, ebrary has announced that it has signed agreements with 12 university presses, Springer-Verlag, DSI Publishing Group, and Learning Network.


According to the announcement, ebrarian lets publishers, Internet portals, academic institutions, libraries, e-learning companies, large corporations, and other organizations provide high-value, focused content to attract and retain customers, increase sales, and make their Web site properties more valuable to advertisers. ebrary's channel partner strategy also operates additional channels to help increase online access and sales.

Channel partners can target specific markets by making their own content securely available online, by accessing relevant content from ebrary's collection, or by combining content from both. Partners can also determine what payment models are appropriate to their businesses. ebrarian supports a customizable business model that allows publishers and channel partners to specify how much content can be viewed or purchased, as well as the price of acquiring content.

ebrarian is powered by ebrary Info-Tools, which provides exploration and comprehension capabilities. Users can interact with content down to the word level to obtain definitions, translations, biographical information, maps, and more; navigate through the content; and access additional materials available on the Web via an intuitive interface. ebrarian also uses Adobe PDF technology to present content true to the original design of the printed document.

In addition, ebrarian's real-time activity reports on document viewing, usage, micro-transactions, and purchases provide data for channel partners to make informed buying and marketing decisions while protecting user privacy.

ebrarian is available now to channel partners in the U.S. and U.K. Pricing will vary according to organizations' individual requirements, including customization and hosting services.
