As libraries support the increased demand for ebooks, simple and streamlined acquisition workflows are more important than ever. At JSTOR, we are continuing to expand our acquisition options to align with our library participants’ established workflows.

We’ve expanded our partnership with ProQuest to include Demand-Driven Acquisition of JSTOR ebooks in the Rialto and OASIS marketplaces, as well as title-by-title ordering and approval plans. Now, libraries that prefer to use these marketplaces can benefit from JSTOR’s outstanding user experience and value, while managing acquisition through their usual workflows.

Key benefits of JSTOR’s ebook program

High-quality academic content: JSTOR offers 120,000+ ebooks from more than 300 publishers, including university presses, public policy organizations, and independent presses. We provide a daily content update to ProQuest to ensure that the latest titles are available to libraries.

DRM-free, unlimited-user access: Our ebook chapters work just like the journal articles on JSTOR, with unlimited simultaneous use, PDF downloads, and printing, and no need to log in or use special software. This creates an easy and familiar experience for researchers.

Seamless discovery on our integrated platform: Ebook chapters are cross-searchable with journals and primary sources on JSTOR, helping to ensure high levels of discovery and usage. Plus, free OCLC MARC records are available for all titles.

A generous DDA trigger: Acquisition is triggered on the 7th item request (a combination of chapter views and downloads). All usage below the trigger is free. The significant amount of usage required to trigger a purchase ensures that acquired titles have proven value for the institution.

Savings on every title: JSTOR offers tiered savings based on each institution’s size and JSTOR Archive Collection participation. Prices in OASIS and Rialto automatically reflect each institution’s savings.
