“It is far more interesting to experiment with models like these to see if libraries, publishers, and most importantly, readers, can benefit.” Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks

RosettaBooks, the leading independent eBook publisher and ebrary, a ProQuest, business have announced three bundled film and fiction perpetual packages for libraries, further expanding access to trade material in addition to ebrary’s robust offering of scholarly research e-books.
The first bundle focuses on the works of Kurt Vonnegut. The package includes 18 titles led by Slaughter-House Five, Cat’s Cradle, and Player Piano. The second bundle features the works of Arthur C. Clarke. The package includes 35 titles led by 2001: A Space Odyssey, Childhood’s End, and all of this seminal science-fiction writer’s short fiction. The third bundle, “Books Into Film,” consists of 30 books that became well-known films led by A Passage to India, The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy, and In the Heat of the Night. Brave New World is a keystone title of the bundle.
Libraries that purchase the bundles receive each copy with single-user access, but will have lifetime lending rights to the titles.
“Rather than getting hung up on the debate between publishers and libraries,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks, “it is far more interesting to experiment with models like these to see if libraries, publishers, and most importantly, readers, can benefit.”
