EBSCO Publishing has released two new ebook and audiobook featured collections for libraries: Election 2012 and Football 2012. Ebook and audiobook featured collections enable libraries to choose from a selection of featured titles covering a broad range of topics within a particular subject area.

Election 2012 is a featured collection that includes academic non-fiction and lighter materials with appeal to the general voting public and younger audiences. The Obama Administration is reviewed from numerous cultural, economic, and military perspectives, and titles covering previous elections and presidential terms in office are also included. The collection offers 72 titles for libraries looking to grow or add to their political collection.

Football 2012 includes a package of 75 fiction and nonfiction ebook and audiobook titles selected to appeal to patrons and students of different ages and varying levels of knowledge of American football. The collection covers all different aspects of football including biographies of key players, health and wellness information, titles on How To and general rules and guidelines of the sport. Football 2012 enables libraries to grow their permanent collection to include the popular sport of football.

Each collection was created by EBSCO's collection development team of librarians to ensure that the collections contain high quality content. These collections will be available for order via EBSCOhost Collection Manager.

eBooks on EBSCOhost offers more than 325,000 ebooks and audiobooks. EBSCO proactively acquires new content in critical areas, based on the dynamic needs of libraries. Earlier in the year EBSCO released EBSCOhost Collection Manager, a collection management tool that allows users to search, browse, build lists, and order ebooks quickly and easily.
