ebrary Offers New Employee Development and HR Databases


Online digital library ebrary has launched two new subscription database products focusing on Employee Development and Human Resources. Featuring a selection of titles geared toward corporate libraries, the Employee Development database includes ebooks and digital resources covering topics including business communication, strategic thinking, and business creativity, while the Human Resources collection focuses on topics such as employee recruitment, diversity, retention and remuneration, training and development, and corporate culture.

The databases both use ebrary’s unlimited, multi-user access model.

“The new subscription products will enhance our approach to strategic e-book acquisition in which diversifying models is a key ingredient,” Leslie Lees, ebrary’s vice president of content development, said in a release.  “We believe libraries can achieve the greatest return on their e-book investment by combining subscription products with additional models such as patron driven acquisition, where libraries can offer access to hundreds of thousands of titles and only purchased if they are used, and perpetual archive, where critical titles can be purchased outright.”
