Friday amusement: the many arms of EBSCO Industries

(reposted from an email to the Collection Development list at work)

So I was thinking about how there’s EBSCO the subscription agent and  EBSCOhost databases and how it gets confusing, so I should clarify that. EBSCO Industries is a large company which owns many children. Or let’s say, it’s a multi-tentacled beast.  EBSCO subscription agent is one arm, EBSCOhost databases comprise another arm, although they must sit next to each other on the corporate body.

Then I wondered what other products and services emerge from the other EBSCO tentacles? According to this web page http://www.ebscoind.com (under GROUPS), here are just the amusing ones I found:

So … invest in EBSCO Industries because no matter how the market turns, something has to be profitable??
