Institutions and Organizations Benefit from AES E-Library Subscriptions

— Audio Engineering Society E-Library subscriptions provide extensive resources for research, product development and education —


The continuously growing Audio Engineering Society (AES) E-Library is the world’s most comprehensive collection of audio information. The AES E-Library contains over 16,000 fully searchable PDF files documenting the progression of audio research from 1953 to the present day. It includes every AES paper published at a convention, conference or in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society


“Researchers, academics and students benefit from E-Library access daily,” says Joshua Reiss, Chair of the AES Publications Policy Committee, “while many relevant institutions – academic, governmental or corporate – do not have an institutional license of the AES E-library, which means their staff or students are missing out on all the wonderful content there. We encourage all involved in audio research and investigation to inquire if their libraries have an E-Library subscription and, if not, suggest the library subscribe.”


E-Library subscriptions can be obtained directly from the AES or through journal bundling services. A subscription allows a library's users to download any document in the E-Library at no additional cost.

The fee for an institutional online E-Library subscription is $1800 per year, which is significantly less than equivalent publisher licenses.
