Library administrators will have a full set of control features to track usage and limit usage by concurrency, monitor the number of downloads and configure authentication methods using IP ranges, referral URLs, username, passwords and other access modes required by the library.
“This is a unique partnership which endorses innovation at Impelsys. school libraries in the US are in early stages of digital adoption. This move will help many schools provide specific content to their students in a flexible and controlled environment. While this helps many publishers make their content available for consumption as ebooks in schools, it also puts schools in control of content accessibility,”
The Junior Library Guild serves thousands of school and public libraries by helping them acquire only the best content suited for young readers. This partnership will ensure the right content is available to the users at the right time and reinforces Impelsys’ vision of spreading knowledge through technology.
“We are excited about this innovative partnership with Impelsys. Impelsys has worked with leading publishers supporting their digital strategy and I feel that with their domain expertise and our reach to school libraries in the US, we will be able to create a highly enriching reading and learning experience for our young readers,” said Randall Asmo, CEO and President of Media Source.
iPublishCentral 5.1 comes with a full set of library lending features to support book check-out & check-in, early check-in, download concurrency controls and limits on number of titles a user can borrow at a time.
