LEHI, UTAH (August 11, 2014)- Wheelers and SirsiDynix are working together to bring thousands of eBooks directly to your library's catalog. Wheelers is one of New Zealand's largest online book suppliers to schools and public libraries and has supplied library services to users across the South Pacific for 40 years. The integration will allow users to search for and download Wheelers' eBook titles through their library's catalog with the click of a button, streamlining the eResource delivery process.

"We're thrilled to integrate Wheelers with eResource Central," said Bill Davison, SirsiDynix CEO. "We want library users to find all that they need in one place and this integration helps them do just that. eResource seekers will be able to easily download titles onto their personal devices through their library's catalog, as well as find all their library resources in one location. We believe communities should be able to seamlessly access all of their digital and physical content and we're excited for our customers in this region of the world to be able to do so."

"The Wheelers ePlatform has a strong focus on making the reader's experience better," said Paul du Temple, Managing Director of Wheelers. "We believe eRC does improve the reader experience and we are therefore delighted to be partnering with SirsiDynix on this project."

eResource Central (eRC) is the industry's leading eResource management tool with seven content providers and more on the way. By providing libraries with cost-effective and seamless management, eRC bridges the gap between content providers and users. With the addition of Wheelers as an eRC partner, libraries across Asia and the Pacific will be able to take advantage of powerful eResource management and delivery without losing relationships with their eResource providers.
