SirsiDynix partnered with Total BooX, Mackin Educational Resources, and Wheelers Books to enhance eResource Central (eRC), its e-resources management tool.
Total BooX, an ebook services company, will offer the titles in its ebook collection to eRC so that libraries can provide them to their patrons via their library catalog. Patrons will have unlimited access to titles, and Total BooX will charge libraries only for the pages that patrons read.
Mackin Educational Resources’ audiobooks, video resources, and ebooks will be integrated into eRC. This content, which is geared to students in preschool through 12th grade, extends eRC’s school library offerings. Libraries will be able to update their local title metadata and allow access to e-resources from their catalogs.
Wheelers Books, one of New Zealand’s largest online book suppliers to schools and public libraries, agreed to offer thousands of ebooks via eRC, which expands access to libraries using eRC across Asia and the Pacific.
