Libraries have led the charge to open up access to the scholarly literature. We help turn that leadership into leverage to reduce costs, to save staff time, to improve library services, and to open up even more content.
To do that we've built, in partnership with librarians, a suite of powerfully simple tools that help deliver articles and fill your repository. They're free, easy to use, open-source, and community-controlled tools to catalyse Open.
Provide one-click access to legal, full-text articles, wherever your users are, while reducing reliance on subscriptions by leveraging Open Access and, streamlining Interlibrary Loans.
