books to ebooks

the future of reading is digital

eBooks on Demand now available in 30 libraries

The eBooks on Demand (EOD) service, which enables to order digital copies from copyright free books, is now provided by 30 libraries in Europe.

 

The recent libraries offering the EOD eBooks are: National Library of Sweden, Library Am Guisanplatz in Switzerland, the Central Library of Slovak Academy of Sciences and Salzburg University Library in Austria.

 

Already digitised items as well as books offered for digitisation are made available by the EOD search at http://search.books2ebooks.eu. However, only half of the EOD libraries are ingested at this time. “It has been a pleasure to see that already 600 registered users have found the EOD search a useful tool,” says Silvia Gstrein, the EOD Project Coordinator. “We will continue to include more libraries in the EOD search,” she assures.

 

Full list of the e-catalogues and repositories of the EOD libraries can easily be found on the website: http://www.books2ebooks.eu/en/content/where-find-books-ebooks-demand.
