~ Customer Feedback Plays Large Role in Choice of New Subjects ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — September 22, 2011 — EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) is announcing the release of 64 new eBook subject sets bringing the total number of subject sets to nearly 200. These additional subject sets reflect the rapid growth of EBSCO’s eBook collection offered to libraries in convenient collections grouped by subject matter.

Subject sets allow for quick and easy purchases in particular high-interest subject areas. Customer feedback played a large role in the development of some of the latest subject sets. Requests for particular subject areas prompted EBSCO to create many of the subject sets available in this September release. All of the subject sets were developed by a team of librarian collection development specialists.

Nine key collection areas were increased including: Arts & Humanities, Business, Information Technology, Medical, Personal Growth & General Education, Science & Technology, Social & Cultural Issues, Social Sciences and Vocational Education. The new subject sets provide an extensive array of subject matter including: American History, leadership & management, LGBT, social networking, nursing and teacher resources. A full list of the latest subject sets are available at: http://www.ebscohost.com/ebooks/subject-sets.
