Baker & Taylor and SirsiDynix Announce eResource Central Integration

Library automation solutions provider SirsiDynix and Baker & Taylor, a distributor of digital and physical books, announced a partnership. Under the partnership, the SirsiDynix eResource Central product will deliver seamless electronic resource and ebook access, offering both borrowing and purchase options to end users. The partnership with Baker & Taylor is said to be a major step in the project, integrating the Axis 360 platform with the eResource Central platform.

eResource Central simplifies the discovery and delivery of econtent to users; however, wherever or whenever they need it. eResource Central will be available to 100% of both SirsiDynix Symphony and Horizon ILS customers via the BLUE Cloud clients that include the SirsiDynix Enterprise and Portfolio discovery solutions, as well as through SirsiDynix Social Library on Facebook and the BookMyne mobile app.

eResource Central aims to bridge the gap between content providers and users, enabling libraries to manage and deliver eresources seamlessly and cost-effectively, while also handling traditional collections with proven solutions used by more than 3,600 libraries worldwide.

Building on the existing Project Gutenberg and Open Library ebook collections already integrated and available through eResource Central, this new partnership enables libraries to integrate their Baker & Taylor Axis 360 content into eResource Central and create an even richer user experience.

Axis 360 is Baker & Taylor’s digital media circulation and management platform. It is a fully accessible platform, which now has nearly 300,000 electronic titles available for library circulation. With Axis 360, library patrons can use multifunction phones, tablets, and e-reader devices to find, check out, and read digital titles. Patrons can use whatever ebook format works best for them—EPUB, PDF formats, or Blio, the fully accessible, free e-reader app that is available on Apple iOS, Android, and Windows devices.
