Product Spotlight: Exciting changes are happening with the R2 Digital Library (Sponsored by Rittenhouse)

The R2 Digital Library from Rittenhouse has provided a comprehensive collection of health sciences resources, such as eBooks, images, and videos, since 2005. We offer unique tools and features that assist librarians with collection management and supply patrons with up-to-date educational, practical, and clinical support resources. Over the last year, Rittenhouse has worked diligently to implement changes and enhancements to the R2 Digital Library platform to better support the health sciences community and patrons. These changes mean that the libraries, librarians, and patrons will have access to a more comprehensive and user-friendly platform while maintaining access to Rittenhouse’s robust collection of resources.

It also means …

  • Expanding your digital health sciences collection is even more affordable with lower cost per concurrent user pricing.
  • New, competitive eBook pricing, same eBook value – dynamic search functionality, admin & patron tools and features, usage statistics, and more.

Be on the lookout for even more changes coming to the R2 Digital Library, including:

  • A brand-new interface with enhanced tools and services.
  • Three concurrent user purchasing option.
  • An expanded catalogue of digital health sciences resources from new publishers and professional societies/associations.
  • Exclusive health sciences content not available anywhere else.

Interested in starting your own R2 Digital Library collection?

All eBooks added to a collection seamlessly combine to create a customizable database, enabling librarians to build collections based on their institutional needs. Librarians have multiple options for starting an R2 Digital Library collection.

Rittenhouse offers first-time customers a free trial to test out the numerous tools and features available on the platform. Librarians can browse specially curated lists of titles, gather usage statistics, and make informed purchasing decisions on what eBooks their patrons need once the trial has ended.

Upon purchase, eBooks are immediately accessible with perpetual access. The eBook database also offers a unique Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) model – with no automatic or required purchase – to enable users to inform collection development decisions.

For more information or to get started with an R2 Digital Library collection, visit r2library.com or contact customerservice@r2library.com.
