Melbourne – 11 November 2015: Civica Library Solutions, a market leader in specialist software and outsourcing that help organisations to transform the way they work, continues to partner with leading local and international e-content providers to provide a seamless library experience for users. The latest partner in Civica's API integration programme is Wheelers Books and their ePlatform solution for libraries.

Civica's e-content integration enables library users to access Wheelers ePlatform content, check availability, loan, and reserve titles, without leaving the Spydus OPAC. For library staff, circulation statistics for e-content is available via Spydus for ease of reporting.

"We were pleased to be able to work with Wheelers to develop this interface," said Marc Nolan, Managing Director of Library Solutions. "Already, we have customers wishing to take up this service as they see the benefit of enabling discovery of all electronic content from the Spydus OPAC".

"Wheelers are really pleased to be able to offer this enhanced access solution in conjunction with Civica," said Paul du Temple, Wheelers Books Managing Director. "We have numerous ePlatform library customers who have Spydus as their LMS and so I'm sure they will be delighted with this development."

Libraries wishing to know more about Civica's e-content integration should contact their local Civica or ePlatform representative.
