Skillsoft has two unique platforms: one for libraries (Books24x7) and one platform for corporations (Books24x7 On Demand). This review is for the Books24x7 library platform. Books24x7 is a subscription e-book product with over 51,000 titles in subjects such as information technology, business, and engineering. The content is rich in both breadth and depth and contains frontlist titles as well as an archive. Collections are affordably priced and there are many options for discounts. The platform offers robust search functionality and value-added features, creating a personalized experience for users. Although the database lacks the ability to download or print large sections of content, it can be licensed for unlimited concurrent users. Although the interface does not deliver the most consistent user experience, the content makes Books24x7 a useful addition to many libraries, especially ones that serve populations in need of information technology, business and engineering e-books.
