ABC-CLIO announces unlimited simultaneous access to hundreds of eBooks

 ABC-CLIO, the independent, award-winning reference publisher, today announced it will extend the availability of its eBooks.  ABC-CLIO will grant users unlimited, simultaneous access to all of its ABC-CLIO eBook titles.

This announcement represents a new concept in eBook usage.  Most publishing companies offer libraries a one-book, one-user model for eBooks.  As with print books, library patrons must check out a book and return it after a certain period of time. ABC-CLIO believes that reference books should be available to patrons at any time, anywhere, no matter how many people are simultaneously in search of the same information.

eBooks are full-text electronic versions of published books that can be searched and read via the Internet. With ABC-CLIO eBooks, users can access resources anywhere, anytime, and perform full-text searches across books or within a specific book to speed research and reference projects. These books can be viewed online from a library, office, home, or remote location using an Internet browser, or can be downloaded to a laptop.

Established in 1955, ABC-CLIO ( is a privately owned corporation. It has for many years enjoyed an international reputation for high quality and innovation. The company's headquarters are in Santa Barbara, California, with offices in Oxford, England and Denver, Colorado. As an educational reference publisher, ABC-CLIO has received critical acclaim for its computer-assisted abstracting and indexing services, world-renowned book program, and cutting-edge online products.

ABC-CLIO publishes more than 80 reference titles a year in subject areas such as world and U.S. history, religion, culture, mythology, and women's studies. Simultaneous access will be available to many titles for example the Dartmouth Honorable Mention award-winner The Encyclopedia of the American Civil War, the award-winning Encyclopedia of Archaeology: History and Discoveries and the Encyclopedia of the Urban Legends.

Features of ABC-CLIO eBooks

Unlimited Simultaneous Access: One single eBook can be made available to every authorized user in an institution or library who wants it, at the same time. *
