Corporate and special libraries are often faced with the challenge of managing an enormous amount of information.
EBSCO's Corporate Division was formed to address these information management requirements while also providing a total cost benefit by handling your library’s subscription needs through one service provider.
Corporate libraries at companies such as AstraZeneca and a large financial institute implement EBSCO Information MarketPlace® to streamline the purchase and management of their information resources. Our Web-based ordering and management services offer an e-procurement solution that integrates with existing platforms such as Ariba®, Oracle®, PeopleSoft® and SAP®, as well as a desktop solution that provides a secure environment for order and payment of all your subscriptions. Corporate libraries that use EBSCO Information MarketPlace benefit from direct order access, multiple payment options, reporting capability, order approval controls and more for all of their subscriptions.
Catherine Brown, UK member of the AstraZeneca library function, explains that “This solution offers customers a user friendly and compliant service. It allows us to get a better view of expenditure and what type of resources customers require. This information is valuable and can then be used in discussions with publishers to ensure we are purchasing the correct electronic resources.”
