For those of you that think there’s “nothing new under the sun”, SirsiDynix’ newest offering, eResource Central, may make you reconsider!
eResource Central took center stage at the opening session of the COSUGI conference in Orlando this past month and was very well received. In fact, we at SirsiDynix have been thrilled at the number of inquiries we’ve received for more information about this exciting, new product. eRC is due to be released later this year
Very briefly, eRC brings your electronic resources (eBooks, Audio Books, eJournals, etc) and your physical materials together into a single result set for maximum exposure and convenience. And because eRC takes advantage of cloud technology, it brings huge operational efficiencies to libraries and powerful new options for library users.
In a nutshell, eResource Central delivers several key benefits, including:
All within a familiar and consistent interface!
eResource Central works seamlessly with Social Library, BookMyne and BookMyne +, Enterprise and Portfolio. Once eRC is configured on your system, the new eRC functionality is immediately available in these applications. When released, it will also be available for both local and SaaS implementations.
And it gets better! Because eRC leverages BLUE Cloud technology from SirsiDynix, there is no need for loading or maintaining electronic resources into the ILS. eResource metadata is auto-harvested from content suppliers and stored in the cloud. So simple!
It’s hard to capture the power and convenience that eResource Central can bring to your library in this brief post. That’s why I recommend that you contact your SD sales representative and ask them for more information. That’s the very best way to learn more about this amazing new product from your partners at SirsiDynix!
