These Subject Sets have been added to an already extensive list of frontlist titles in collections created by EBSCO's Collection Development team. The sets allow for quick and easy purchases in particular high-interest subject areas. There is no title overlap across sets, and no title overlap from year to year, so there is never duplication between sets.

EBSCO eBooks offers over 400,000 e-books and audiobooks. EBSCO proactively acquires new content in critical areas, based on the dynamic needs of libraries. Accessing the EBSCOhost platform for e-books and audiobooks saves librarians training time and adds a well-known search platform to the end user's experience. Allowing end users to search for e-books and audiobooks along with their EBSCOhost database content improves the discoverability of library collections. Lowering the cost for libraries makes the decision to focus on or add to e-book and audiobook collections easier and more cost-effective.
