EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) has released nine new audiobook collections in popular genres, providing public libraries with a quick and convenient way to begin or expand their audiobook offerings.

The latest audiobook sets focus on niche areas of fiction and nonfiction. These collections contain a wide variety of materials from best sellers such as the Hunger Games trilogy and Tina Fey's Bossypants to recently digitized classics such as Edgar Rice Burrough's John Carter. With these latest sets, particular attention was given to very specific areas of interest to public library patrons. 

These new audiobook collections are a prepackaged set of titles chosen specifically to fulfill niche areas of interest in a library's readership. The nine new sets that are now available include:

  • Romantic Fiction Audiobooks

  • Mystery Fiction Audiobooks

  • Humor Audiobooks

  • Sci-Fi Audiobooks

  • Fantasy Fiction Audiobooks

  • Biography Audiobooks

  • Psychological and Suspense Fiction Audiobooks

  • Historical Fiction and Nonfiction Audiobooks

  • Christian Fiction Audiobooks

Each collection was created by EBSCO's collection development team of librarians based on popularity, positive recommendations and reviews from trade publications as well as usage statistics. These collections will be updated quarterly with the newest and best titles in each genre, and will be available on the website and for order via EBSCOhost Collection Manager.  

eBooks on EBSCOhost offers nearly 300,000 ebooks and audiobooks. EBSCO proactively acquires new content in critical areas, based on the needs of libraries. EBSCO has recently released EBSCOhost Collection Manager, a collection management tool that allows users to search, browse, build lists, and order e-books quickly and easily.
