ProQuest invites you to participate in an eBooks presentation showcasing our eBooks product, Ebrary.   We would love to highlight some of the main features of the platform and the content for you.  The presentations would be offered at numerous times and readily viewable through an internet webinar.  The webinar will highlight several key functional points including:
