New NetLibrary Offer - SOLINET/NEBASE Public Library Shared Collection

Entry Categories: Discounts   E-Resources  

In cooperation with NetLibrary and SOLINET, the Nebraska Library Commission and NEBASE are pleased to announce the launch of the first Shared Collection of NetLibrary eBooks for Public Libraries!

Building on the success of the previous SOLINET Shared Collections, we are now offering a collection created especially for public libraries. This unique and exciting collection is projected to begin with 350 titles and expand to 1,000 as participation grows.

The Public Library Shared Collection is expected to include content from leading publishers such as McGraw-Hill, AMACOM, Beacon Press, Class Publishers, and Elsevier. Having no duplications of other SOLINET shared collections, the Public Library Shared Collection’s emphasis will be on 2006 and later.

The initial title list includes books on consumer advice, do-it-yourself, parenting, general science, and gardening as well as titles for children and young adults. eBooks will be available in early 2008, depending on member participation levels.


  • MARC record sets included in price.

  • No additional licensing for those who have completed eBook and Subscriber Agreements in connection with purchases of NetLibrary eBooks since January 2003.

  • Reference Center functionality will be enabled for all participants, extending to their other Reference Center holdings as well.

The following features will also be available to subscribers:

  • Available 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week
  • Can be viewed online on any PC connected to the Internet
  • Remote access available
  • Real time usage reports are available from your Library Resource Center.
