What Our Customers Say

The ACS Core Plus collection has enabled us to support our students and faculty with materials that we never would have been able to afford – or probably even identify–in a timely and cost effective way. I also, as a librarian, especially like the analytics, as they allow me to see what the students are using and to take that knowledge to enhance collection development for books and other library materials. We always get very positive feedback from our campus on the ACS Core Plus package.”
