OverDrive and SirsiDynix to Deliver eResource Central Integration

Press Release

January 15, 2013

Furthering its initiative to make e-resources easily accessible to library patrons, SirsiDynix announced its intent to integrate the OverDrive API toolkit into the soon-to-be-released eResource Central. SirsiDynix’ eResource Central will provide one-click electronic resource and e-book delivery. The initiative with OverDrive is a major step forward in the project, making available OverDrive content in a meaningful integration that will benefit both libraries and their users.

“SirsiDynix has enjoyed a long and productive partnership with OverDrive,” said SirsiDynix CEO Bill Davison. “As an industry leader of integrated library system solutions, we are excited to work with the global leader in e-book distribution to provide simplified management and access to some of the most extensive e-book collections in the world. Integrating the OverDrive APIs from their recently launched Developer Portal into the SirsiDynix eResource Central product, we’ll be able to provide a simplified, powerful experience for our libraries.”

“Collaborating with SirsiDynix on this project enables OverDrive to deliver more powerful, integrated solutions for our mutual customers,” said Claudia Weissman, OverDrive VP of Library and Educational Sales. “We look forward to seeing the significant benefits that eResource Central will bring.”

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 through SirsiDynix Social Library on Facebook and the BookMyne mobile app. eRC will also be available as part of the new client applications to be shown at this year’s annual COSUGI User Conference. 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 e-books and e-journals, via a single user interface. This simplifies requests, downloads and matching of compatible e-books and e-reader formats. eResource Central will include full support for many e-readers as well as other e-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. To further support SirsiDynix library customers, eResource Central also provides end-user tools to simplify the e-resource access and download process.

eResource Central also offers 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. With more than 750 customers and 1,000 product implementations in the SirsiDynix cloud, eResource Central builds on time-tested and proven technology.
