“Seit einigen Jahren arbeiten wir als Distributor für die 123Library. Verschiedene institutionelle Kunden haben Titel mit Campus-Lizenzen erworben. Die Abwicklung der Bestellungen durch das 123Library Team waren immer zügig und problemlos. Bisher haben wir nicht eine einzige Reklamation von unseren Kunden erhalten. Die Nutzung und die Stabilität der Plattform scheint fehlerfrei zu sein. Wir führen 123Library weiter gern in unserem Portfolio und bieten es Kunden aktiv an.”

Who is CloudPublish for?


CloudPublish ends the dependency on aggregators to sell eBooks to customers by delivering the resources needed for publishers to deliver eBooks, eChapters, and eJournals themselves directly to customers online.

CloudPublish technology can also provide publishers with existing websites the tools required to answer the sophisticated demands of public and academic libraries as well as to deliver digital content to individuals.
