books to ebooks

the future of reading is digital

The eBooks on Demand network extended in Switzerland

Three more libraries from Switzerland joined the eBooks on Demand (EOD) service network and enable their collections of copyright free books to be ordered as e-books on users’ request from any part of the world. Now the EOD service is available via 35 European libraries.


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


The collections of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich, which are subject to the EOD service, can also be found from the common EOD search engine at


Silvia Gstrein, the EOD Project Coordinator specifies: „With these additional 350 000 records of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich, the EOD search engine has exceeded already the line of 3,5 million records“. The records in the search engine include links to the books offered for 

digitisation on demand as well as already digitised books containing links to the full texts.


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.
