The digital library

Full MARC support!!
All titles in our collections are supporting the MARC (Machine Readable Cataloging) standard, making it easy to create integration between your search system and Books24x7 Academic. The MARC standard ensures that all the bibliographic data from Books24x7 Academic becomes available in your search systems.
Access through EZproxy
We integrate through EZproxy, to ensuring a flexible access. EZproxy is a middleware application that gives users remote access. In practice, it is a server between the users and the central databases. Your users connect to EZproxy, which on their behalf creates access to the databases, retrieves the desired content and sends it back to users. As EZproxy runs on the library server (and thus IP address), it is also possible to access the databases easily and anonymously outside the library area.
