See how Stephen F. Austin State University is using EBSCO’s eBook Academic Collection to provide students with a wide breadth of information for their research needs.
Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) in Nacogdoches, Texas, has selected EBSCO’s eBook Academic Collection to provide students with a wide breadth of information for their research needs.
“The eBook Academic Package provides a wide range of multidisciplinary titles from leading university presses and other high-level publishers,” says Susan Clarke, head of research and instructional services in SFA’s Ralph W. Steen Library. “This type of collection allows SFA to provide our users access to a greater number and quality of materials than a traditional book purchase model.”
The library also noted that the intuitive interface and ability to integrate the collection into their catalog fits into the library’s goals of ease of access, relevancy, currency and discoverability.
