Thousands of new titles added to ebook and video collections

  • Griffith’s primary ebook database, ebrary Academic Complete, added 20,000 new titles to its collection in January, bringing its total number of titles up to 109,000.

The additional titles come from renowned publishers such as Ashgate, Edinburgh University Press, Harvard University Press, Peter Lang, MIT Press and Wiley. With more than a third of the ebooks published since 2009, this significant expansion also increases the quality and currency of the Academic Complete collection, which both Griffith researchers and students are already using extensively.
