Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
ebrary®, a leading provider of e-books and research technology, today announced it has added new e-books and other documents to its open access collection on cyberbullying. The collection, which ebrary subsidizes, now includes over 100 titles that can help parents, educators, and others better understand, prevent, and take action against this growing concern in time for back-to-school. The site is available today at http://site.ebrary.com/lib/cyberbullying.
“With school back in session and an increasing use of online learning, we felt the need to update this resource, which we have offered to the public for more than a year,” said Leslie Lees, Vice President of Content Development at ebrary. “It’s very rewarding to have such a wealth of authoritative content from our trusted publishers that enable us to periodically create and subsidize collections to raise awareness around important issues such as cyberbullying.”
ebrary’s Cyberbullying Searchable Information Center includes such titles as Cyberbullying: Activities to Help Children and Teens Stay Safe in Texting, Twittering, Social Networking World, by Vanessa Rogers (Jessica Kingsley Publishers, 2010) and Banishing Bullying Behavior: Transforming the Culture of Pain, Rage, and Revenge, by Suellen Fried and Blanche Sosland (Rowman & Littlefield, 2010). It also includes a growing selection of documents uploaded by ebrary employees from authoritative sites including the Federal Trade Commission, Pew Internet & American Life Project, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and other agencies. ebrary encourages organizations to upload their own relevant materials from local computers with DASH!™ (Data Sharing, Fast) – a complimentary feature of many ebrary e-book subscription databases.
The Cyberbullying Searchable Information Center is just one of a growing number of open access collections created by ebrary employees and customers with DASH!. For a listing of additional, freely available collections, please visit http://www.ebrary.com/corp/oa.jsp.
