We are pleased to announce that University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) is teaming up with ProQuest to make thousands of ebooks available on the UPSO platform via the OASIS® system.
“We built Oxford Scholarship Online and partnered with many of the world’s finest and most respected university presses on UPSO to help users better discover and make connections among the content of these high-quality monographs,” said Rebecca Seger, Senior Director of Institutional Sales at Oxford University Press. “By collaborating with ProQuest, we are further ensuring that quality scholarship is easily acquired by our mutual library customers and continues to help the monograph thrive in a digital environment.”
Seger calls the partnership “a leap forward for ProQuest customers,” adding, “we could not be more thrilled that OASIS users are now able to more easily acquire digital UPSO content. We completely recognize the benefit of the suite of services provided by ProQuest. They are crucially important to libraries.”
The OASIS search, selection and acquisition system allows customers to select ebooks according to their platform preferences, and uses the broadest print and electronic books database for academic libraries in the industry. It provides access and end-to-end acquisition workflow support to the market’s largest selection of ebooks (more than 1.7 million titles) via the Ebook Central, EBL, ebrary, MyiLibrary and EBSCO books platforms. OASIS customers benefit from advanced search and selection capabilities and one consolidated interface for ordering, invoicing and reporting.
“We aim to continually broaden and enrich our customers’ options by making OASIS a gateway to books from any platform or publisher. Partnering with Oxford University Press to offer UPSO’s top-of-line scholarly content to OASIS users is right in line with that goal,” said Kevin Sayar, Senior Vice President and General Manager, ProQuest Books.
