Three more libraries join eBooks on Demand

Share this on social media:

Three more libraries from Switzerland have joined the eBooks on Demand (EOD) service network. This means that their collections of copyright-free books can be ordered as e-books from anywhere in the world.

The most recent libraries offering the EOD eBooks are Zentralbibliothek Zürich and the university libraries of Basel and Bern.

The collections of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich can be found via the common EOD search engine. The records in the search engine include links to the books offered for digitisation on demand as well as already-digitised books with links to the full texts.

'With these additional 350,000 records of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich, the EOD search engine has exceeded 3.5 million records,' commented Silvia Gstrein, project coordinator of EOD.

The collections of the university libraries of Basel and Bern can be accessed from the list of the e-catalogues and repositories of the EOD libraries.

The EOD service was launched by 13 libraries in 8 European countries in 2006. Now the service is provided by 35 libraries in 12 countries.
