dawsonera provides a complete ebook solution, from acquisition to robust hosting, with titles available to purchase or rent in real-time. The system provides flexible models to meet your needs and can be accessed both on-site and remotely.
In today’s digital world content needs to be delivered in the way users wish to consume it, via devices such as tablets and mobile – as well as in print – and within budgets which can sometimes be tight. Ebooks aid flexible learning and allow the library to deliver more content 24/7.
But the world of ebooks isn’t always an easy one, with publisher restrictions, different models and sometimes technology that outdates what the library itself can support.
