Dynamic Frontfile CAB eBooks (2008 – present) Over 170 CAB eBooks are in the frontfile (that’s over 3,000 chapters). The full front file collection is constantly updated with new titles. In addition, CAB eBooks operates alongside CAB Abstracts – CABI’s leading abstracts database – which provides the ideal tool to search the rich content. The frontfile contains books published from 2008 to present and is available under CABI’s innovative lease purchase model. This model has been developed in response to librarians feedback on the acquisition of CAB eBook content, and presents the ideal mix of content ownership and subscription-like acquisition. If you continue to lease CAB eBooks content for the three years, ownership of the second archive will be transferred to you after your three year lease. Our three year lease cycle means that you can still continue to access new material, but this new content will not be available to own outright until the next three year archive is available.
