Education Using Ebooks

Ebook Central 10

Ebooks are a great way for teachers and students to put together technology with essential knowledge and skills. ProQuest provides a number of ways to put ebooks to good use in the classroom. The all-new ProQuest Ebook Central provides your library with every possible access option from purchasing your ebook collection directly to providing set loan days over a year, or to simply subscribing to unlimited use of large amounts of key content, just like you would your favorite reference database. Resources in ProQuest Ebook Central support all types of classroom instruction as well, including STEM, History, Literature, Math, Language Arts, Education, Psychology, Science, Religion, and more. And, with ProQuest’s Ebook Central, students may mark and annotate key parts of the text of any book, or download to any device.

Learn all about ProQuest Ebook Central, or any of our other extensive ProQuest resource collections by joining the ProQuest Training and Consulting team in a free public webinar. If we haven’t listed the class you’re interested in, just contact us and we’ll be happy to make arrangements to meet with you directly.

Benefits of eLibrary and eLibrary Curriculum Edition

Research Topics eLibrary 2015Aside from the fact that ProQuest eLibrary and ProQuest eLibrary Curriculum Edition offer over 109 million documents, all in full-text, and 8 different media types, there are a number of other exceptional values associated with eLibrary. One of these is the growing and diverse collection of Research Topics pages. These pages are topical compilations of some of eLibrary’s “best of” content on major areas of study. You can find items for use in any research project from biographies to tablet computers, history to major social issues, or science to health. Research Topics even bring together key information and material found in eLibrary supporting Common Core ELA standards. There are currently over 10,000 of these unique pages in eLibrary, and growing.

Come and learn all about eLibrary’s Research Topics pages — or any other of our expansive ProQuest resources. You may request a privately arranged training with any member of our Training and Consulting Partners team. To get started, just email us at training@proquest.com . We’ll respond back to you and work to get everything arranged!

Ebooks and ProQuest Research Databases

ProQuest Ebook Connections2

Some combinations just make sense. Take for example the robust ProQuest platform which delivers ProQuest Research Library Prep and ProQuest Central K-12, giving access to thousands of full-text periodicals, scholarly journals, and trade publications in every area of the curriculum, and ProQuest’s ebrary Academic Complete, which delivers over 100,000 full volumes of primarily non-fiction ebook research content, also across all areas of the curriculum. When you’re using these two resources together, ProQuest will automatically connect them to save you time and effort. You get the best periodicals combined with the best books on your thoughtfully searched topics. It just makes sense.

eLibrary or ebrary? Is this the same product with different spelling? The answer: No, these are two unique ProQuest products that offer excellent educational solutions and when used together are a powerhouse!

Educators can even search for resources that correlate to state and national standards.

ebrary helps libraries align with Common Core Standards by providing essential and affordable ebooks relevant to national and provincial curriculum standards. We offer dedicated mobile apps, downloads, citations, annotations, and more.
