                                        Welcome to East View



    Since 1989, East View Information Services has been providing high quality information products and services
    in native and translated foreign languages to a wide variety of academic, commercial and government
    customers throughout the world.

    In 2006, our offering expanded with print resources from Turkey, Iran, and Egypt. In 2007, we reached out to
    online content providers in the Middle East and added Arabic e-books from Egypt. With popular uprisings
    blazing throughout the MENA region, East View foresees an unprecedented need and opportunity to document
    these dynamically changing societies by capturing and aggregating new content.

    These places – with the most dynamic social, political and economic situations – are often the most interesting
    to the libraries, students, analysts and researchers you serve. They are at the core of East View’s service to
    you.

    Whether you seek academic or popular books in e-book format, online access to current newspapers and
    press archives, or subscriptions to important journal titles from the Middle East, you can rely on East View. Our
    expanded Middle Eastern offerings continue traditions started by East View twenty years ago.

    East View is committed to sourcing uncommon information from extraordinary places supported with
    exceptional service. We look forward to serving you.

E-Book Approval Plans and Serials



East View has been meeting the foreign language needs of
librarians and researchers since 1989

Book Approval Plan
East View’s Arabic-language e-book approval plan is similar to approval plans for print publications, but
with the ease of online access. Our Arabic and Chinese native speakers select e-books according to
your profile from hundreds of thousands of e-books available.

Libraries, together with an East View Account Representative, complete a profile containing general
parameters (country, language, special instructions, etc.) and subject parameters. E-books that fall
within the profile and according to the designated budget are made accessible, at intervals and
budgets determined by the library. Your institution receives discounts based upon the size of the
approval plan.

MARC records are supplied free of charge to approval plan customers upon request.

Serials Services
Looking for a reliable supplier for serials from Iran, Turkey, or Egypt? East View also supplies serials
from countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia. Our network of representatives allows us to offer by
far the largest selection of periodicals, including many hard-to-find titles available nowhere else.
