content with sophisticated research technology including the ebrary
Reader, which optimizes page-by-page viewing of PDF documents, and
InfoTools, which seamlessly links search queries to multiple online
databases and information on the Web.

ebrary's Library Science collection will greatly enhance the American
Libraries digital archive, and the project is a great way to help endorse
National Library Week, said Leonard Kniffel, editor and publisher of
American Libraries. By selecting any word or phrase in an American
Libraries digital edition, our members can instantly search across ebrarys
titles from leading publishers using the Search Library Science Collection
item on the InfoTools menu. Additionally, they may take advantage of many
other InfoTools functions including full-text searching across the
American Libraries archive, linking to resources on the Web such as
dictionaries, encyclopedias, and maps, and highlighting text that is
stored on a personal bookshelf for future reference.

We are proud to partner with ALA and American Libraries to show our
support for National Library Week, said David Bass, ebrarys SVP of Sales &
Marketing. Librarians and their staff make enormous contributions to our
schools, colleges, and the community in general. We hope that by offering
access to our collection of digital books relevant to librarianship and
library science, we can help with the greater cause.
