ALPSP eBooks Collection launched

It's taken a little longer to get off the ground than first planned, but I'm very pleased to report that the launch 'AeBC' eBooks Collection on the Ingram Digital MyiLibrary platform was launched at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver. Fifteen ALPSP publisher members have contributed 1,200 titles to the collection, in 11 subject collections.

The launch collection publishers include:
American Psychiatric Publishing; Amsterdam University Press; Australian Academic Press; Edinburgh University Press; EDP Sciences; Equinox Publishing; Federation Press; Hindawi Publishing Corporation; International Food Information Service (IFIS Publishing); IOS Press; NRC Research Press; Multilingual Matters; Policy Press; Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists; Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Full details of the AeBC and how the service works are available on the website. I'd be happy to provide more information and of course to welcome other ALPSP members who would like to add titles to forthcoming collections (there will two a year). Our main contact at MyiLibrary is Louise Weale who would also be happy to send details.
