r2

 

Introduction

 

Rittenhouse Book Distributors, Inc. is pleased to offer to HSLI  members the following consortium pricing for purchase of eBooks on The R2 Digital Library. The business model for the R2 Digital Library enables individual institutions to purchase collections that are tailored for each individual institution.

 

The R2 Digital Library business model is designed to enable the purchase of eBooks at the individual resource level:

 

  • Collection development may be based upon acquisition needs
  • All eBooks are purchased for the life of the edition
  • Libraries do not renew a subscription to the same collection annually…pay once and own the resource for life of edition. Annual maintenance fee reduced with qualifying purchase.
  • The business model enables the libraries to create an initial collection and expand this collection as needed
  • Lists of popular eBooks available, DCT collections available
  • Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) only collections available

 

Developed by Rittenhouse Book Distributors, the R2 Digital Library is a web-based eBook platform offering fully-integrated and searchable medical, nursing, and allied health source eBook content from key health science publishers. Content is available from publishers such as Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Delmar Cengage Learning, The American Academy of Pediatrics, Elsevier and many more.

R2 Digital Library includes features like customized saved searches, images, references and bookmarks, A–Z Drug Index, and an A–Z Topic Index. Ebook content may be browsed by category, discipline, or title, and users can perform searches across the entire platform, finding information on a topic in just two clicks.
