“We can be your nation of origin serials vendor for 91% of the titles covered by Index Medicus.”

“Two-thirds of Index Medicus'" titles are published outside the U.S., and the 91% includes only the titles published in the countries where EBSCO’s offices are located, not the surrounding ones which are often served by these offices as well. Now, you’re not likely to want even close to this number of medical titles. You may not even subscribe to any medical titles. But the point is that EBSCO is located virtually everywhere in the world that your titles could originate, no matter whether your library’s collection consists of very broad or very narrow subject areas.

“EBSCO’s database includes approximately 95,000 listings for titles published outside the U.S., and we operate 16 non-U.S. Regional Offices on 5 continents. Because our offices are staffed with knowledgeable serials professionals who literally ‘speak the language,’ we are able to maintain effective, personal contacts with publishers throughout the world.

“With EBSCO you can choose to work with the General Manager and serials support staff in your region of the U.S. for all your subscription needs, knowing they have the resources abroad to see that you receive superior service on your non-domestic serials. Or, if you prefer to deal directly with a nation of origin vendor, I or any of my colleagues in EBSCO offices around the world will be glad to work with you.”
