3M and SirsiDynix Partner to Deliver eResource Central Integration

Press Release

January 24, 2013

Advancing their initiative to make electronic resources easily accessible to library patrons, SirsiDynix and 3M announced their intent to integrate the 3MTM Cloud Library content into eResource Central, currently scheduled for release in Q1 of 2013. SirsiDynix’ eResource Central delivers key features such as hit list availability, centralized sign-on and one-click downloads. The initiative with 3M is a significant broadening of the project, integrating 3M content in a way that will benefit both libraries and their users.

“We’ve been extremely impressed with the sophisticated integration capabilities that 3M has built into their Cloud Library product,” said SirsiDynix CEO Bill Davison. “We’re confident that the cooperation between our two organizations will deliver a rich integration with tangible benefits for our libraries and their users.”

"3M created the Cloud Library with ILS integration in mind to ensure a seamless experience for libraries using the Cloud Library," said Matt Tempelis, Global Business manager for the 3MTM Cloud Library, "Through integration with eResource Central and direct ebook check out through the OPAC, 3M is reaffirming our commitment to delivering the best possible experience for our library customers and their patrons."

With more than 250,000 titles from more than 300 publishers the 3MTM Cloud Library has an extensive collection of popular fiction and non-fiction titles for a library collection. All libraries using the 3MTM Cloud Library can select books from top publishers like Penguin, Random House and HarperCollins as well as ebooks from hundreds of smaller publishers.

eResource Central simplifies the discovery and delivery of e-content to users however, wherever or whenever they need it. eResource Central will be available to 100 percent of both SirsiDynix Symphony and Horizon ILS customers via the BLUE Cloud clients which include the SirsiDynix Enterprise and Portfolio discovery solutions, as well as SirsiDynix Social Library on Facebook and the BookMyne mobile app. eResource Central bridges 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 used by more than 3,600 libraries worldwide.

For library users, eResource Central provides simple access to library resources, including ebooks and ejournals, via a single user interface. eResource Central will include full support for many e-readers as well as other content formats, along with their associated digital permissions. For libraries and library staff, 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.
