Carlsbad, CA - August 16, 2010. EOS.Web Digital is designed for libraries whose collections are stored in digital, electronic formats. The application and digital content may be stored on a local network server, or accessed remotely from one of our global data centers.

In addition to traditional library features, EOS.Web Digital has many value-added features specifically designed for electronic libraries, including:

  • Electronic Resource Management
  • Electronic Content Management
  • Content Aggregator
  • Reference Tracking
  • IP Authentication
  • Classification Management
  • KnowledgeBuilder

100% digital libraries are rapidly increasing in number each day. The term hybrid library is often used for libraries that have both physical and digital collections. Digital libraries have no specific vertical market and include Academic, Legal, Medical, Association, Government and any other type of library.

In today's fast-paced environment, library patrons need to quickly access electronic information from many different locations and sources, including their office, home, airport, hotel and many others. Large digitization projects are underway at Google, the Million Book Project, and Internet Archive, among others. In fact, Amazon.com, the world's largest book seller, now sells nearly twice as many eBooks as printed ones.

Digital libraries offer many advantages over traditional libraries, including:

  • No physical library boundaries
  • No limited library hours of operation
  • Multiple access to the same information
  • Fast and easy information retrieval
  • Historic preservation of older materials
  • No physical space limitations
  • Improved image quality of older documents
  • Increased access to patrons through email and social networks
  • Overall reduced operational costs
