Ellibs Increases Range of Science and Technology Ebook Store in the Nordic Countries


Ellibs Ltd and Elsevier – a leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services – have concluded a co-operation agreement.
Thousands of high-quality titles by Elsevier are now also available through Ellibs, with almost 2 000 new titles coming out annually.

”This cooperation will significantly expand the already wide range of ebooks available through Ellibs Ltd. At the same time, it is a gratifying recognition of our know-how in the development of sales, marketing and technology related to ebooks,” says Jarmo Heikkilä from Ellibs Ltd.

”We are pleased to be partnering with Ellibs to distribute our growing list of ebooks. We believe that the ebook era is only just beginning. Ebooks allow us to provide our customers with first-rate content in the form that best meets their requirements,” says Tom Rosenthal, Senior Manager Electronic Product Sales from Elsevier’s Science and Technology Books division.

Ebooks are electronic books downloaded over the web, which can be bought or borrowed from a library similarly to a printed book. Ebooks borrowed from a library are automatically returned at the end of the loan period. Advantages of the digital book include immediate availability and all-round search properties: for example, an ebook allows you to look for information in a way similar to search engines.
