eResource Central

Overview: 

Would you like to manage your entire eResource workflow in a single place? eResource Central® (eRC) brings all your providers together into a unified interface and eliminates the need to redirect patrons outside the library OPAC to unfamiliar interfaces, making the entire process more comfortable for you and your users. By integrating with more eResource providers than any other digital content management tool, eRC lets users search eResources alongside physical content, see real-time availability and previews for eResources, and download most titles from within the catalog. Make your OPAC the first and last place your patrons come to find any content.
