What is Ebook Library (EBL)?
Ebook Library (EBL) is the newest resource from our VIVA membership (Virtual Library of Virginia). JSRCC partners together Virginia’s public (and some private) institutions for more purchasing power. This new collection model, called “demand‐driven acquisitions,” allows patrons to choose what books are purchased.
