Product Spotlight: When It Comes to E-Books, the R2 Digital Library Stands Alone (Sponsored)

Rittenhouse R2The R2 Digital Library is a health sciences electronic book database that features a comprehensive collection of medical, nursing, and allied health titles presented in a clean and intuitive interface.

Available from Rittenhouse Book Distributors, the database offers thousands of health sciences e-books from the leading publishers and professional associations: e-books, videos, and images. These high yield, current resources provide the specialized content demanded by health sciences professionals, faculty, and students. In addition to traditional publisher content, the R2 Digital Library also offers access to open educational resources (OERs).

Resources on the R2 Digital Library are purchased individually and seamlessly combine to create a customized database, enabling librarians to build collections based on their institutional needs. Upon purchase, e-books are immediately accessible with perpetual access. The e-book database also offers a unique patron driven acquisition model—with no automatic or required purchase—to enable users to inform collection development decisions.

A web-based database, the R2 Digital Library offers access on desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and web-capable electronic readers. The extensive image library, deep linking, and indexed search functionality provide an enhanced experience for the user. The R2 Digital Library’s user interface is optimized for the health sciences, and e-books are easily integrated into any collection.
