NEW YORK – Thomson Reuters today announced an integrated e-library management solution that combines the power of Thomson Reuters ProView, the leading professional eReader platform, with SirsiDynix eResource Central, the leading e-content distribution and management system.
End users will now have faster, more convenient access to ProView titles within a library, and ProView library managers will have an automated enterprise solution that enables them to quickly and cost-effectively manage their collection of titles. This integration will be available to all libraries using SirsiDynix discovery tools and will particularly benefit libraries using EOS Web.
Thomson Reuters ProView is the first eReader platform specifically built for professional use, with advanced features such as full-text search, secured notes and highlights, and content updating. ProView recently received a top honor at the British Legal Awards. It is available for iPad and Android tablets, and for Windows and Mac computers. ProView titles are currently available in the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile.
"We're excited to improve the user experience for legal, tax and accounting, and other professionals in accessing library content," said Scott Nelson, Head of Print and Advanced Media, Thomson Reuters. "Integrating the capabilities of the ProView eReader platform with eResource Central combines the only professional-grade eBook content and reader, with leading enterprise library automation. Now, customers can find, check out, use, and check in all of their needed library resources in one place, improving their research capabilities and productivity."
eResource Central is the industry's leading eResource management tool, which integrates with SirsiDynix's EOS, Horizon, and Symphony library management systems. By providing libraries with cost-effective and seamless management, eResource Central bridges the gap between content providers and users.
The integrated library solution provides a unified search that enables users to see ProView eBook and physical titles together in the same catalog. Users also can see real-time availability. Library managers can quickly and easily sync thousands of titles across their library, and automatically download the latest ProView title information.
In the U.S., ProView currently offers more than 1,000 legal eBooks covering state and federal court rules, statutes, treatises, and more, as well as tax and accounting titles. An additional 200 U.S. titles are scheduled to be added in the second half of 2015.
"Integrating the ProView eReader platform and eResource Central brings great benefits and value to our shared customers," said Eric Keith, vice president of Marketing & Business Development at SirsiDynix. "Bringing together ProView's innovative eReader technology with the EOS side of the SirsiDynix family adds tremendous capabilities that make eBooks an even more valuable and useful component of digital libraries for professionals."
