Ovid Expands Partnership with Oxford University Press to Increase eBook Offerings
Posted Jul 17, 2007 Print Version     Page 1of 1

Ovid Technologies, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health, has announced that it has expanded its agreement with Oxford University Press (OUP) to provide over 300 OUP medical and health science e-books, including over 80 new titles, for subscription and purchase on the Books@Ovid platform.

As part of the agreement, while continuing to offer the traditional annual subscription option, Ovid will also offer Books@Ovid customers the option of a perpetual access, or purchase model, for any of the titles scheduled to be live on Books@Ovid, as well as those that are already available on the platform. The purchase option allows customers to own top-selling OUP titles on Books@Ovid, such as the Oxford Textbook of Medicine, Oxford Textbook of Surgery, and the New Oxford Textbook of Psychiatry, in perpetuity, with no limits to their access rights through Books@Ovid.

Books@Ovid combines premium content with search and discovery technology featuring natural language searching. Since Books@Ovid is fully integrated with an institution’s eresources, users can link directly to any other content resource referenced in a book. Other key features include an expandable table of contents, back-of-the-book indexing, and simple navigation. In addition, users always have access to a title’s most current edition.

The addition of the new Oxford University Press titles and the inclusion of this publisher’s entire Books@Ovid selection in the purchase option provide more choice to the Books@Ovid user community. In addition to Oxford University Press, books from Springer, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, McGraw-Hill, and other publishers are also available on Books@Ovid.
