Coronavirus-Impacted Libraries Get Unlimited Access to Ebook Central Holdings

ProQuest has partnered with more than 50 publishers to support libraries
in providing unlimited access to Ebook Central holdings for all patrons – at no extra charge.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is having an unprecedented effect on higher-education institutions across the globe. Many libraries have found they suddenly need to support a new level of distance learning and research – and access to electronic resources is imperative.

To support this urgent need, ProQuest has partnered with more than 50 publishers to support libraries in providing unlimited access to Ebook Central holdings for all patrons – at no extra charge.

Starting this week, ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 will get unlimited access to all owned titles from these publishers through mid-June. This means that all licenses – including single-user and three-user models – will automatically convert to unlimited access during that period, helping librarians bridge the gap for their patrons in this rapidly changing environment. The unlimited access also applies to additional titles purchased through mid-June.

No action is required by librarians to switch on unlimited access – this will be done automatically, and the transition will be seamless for users.

“These are turbulent times, and libraries are facing unprecedented challenges,” said David Parker, Vice President of ProQuest Books. “ProQuest and our publishing partners are here to help. We’ve been hearing from librarians around the world that they need unlimited access to help prevent interruptions to teaching and learning. We’re thankful to our publishing partners for working with us to help make this happen.”
