Getting an e-book shouldn't be so hard.
In 2011, SirsiDynix announced development for SirsiDynix® eResource Central™, a next generation electronic resource management solution for libraries. eResource Central will bridge the gap between content providers and users, enabling libraries to manage and deliver e-resources seamlessly and cost-effectively while also handling traditional collections with proven solutions in use today by more than 3,600 customers worldwide.
Libraries want to make e-books, e-journals, digitized collections and all types of e-resources available in a single, seamless, integrated experience for their users. eResource Central will make it a reality.
Simplifying e-book delivery
For library users, eResource Central will provide access to all library resources, including e-books and e-journals, via a single user interface. This simplifies requests, downloads and matching of compatible e-books and e-reader formats.
Strength in numbers
eResource Central will offer economies of scale for customers, taking advantage of SirsiDynix’s cloud environment and expertise to reduce the need to load and index e-resource collections locally while maintaining the library’s ability to present staff and end users with a single discovery interface for all library resources.
Savings for libraries
For libraries, eResource Central enables cost savings and simplifies the process of delivering content of disparate sources and formats to users by managing licensing and access rights; maintaining MARC records and metadata for library e-resources; integrating e-resource usage into circulation reporting; and managing electronic content acquisition and creation.
Stable cloud platform
With more than 750 customers and 1,000 product implementations in the SirsiDynix cloud, eResource Central will build on time-tested and proven technology.
