European libraries own millions of books published from 1500 to 1900. Due to their age and value, they are often only accessible to users actually present at these libraries. With the EOD service these hidden treasures will now become available to everybody and anywhere. Users will be able to order eBooks via the common library catalogues; the libraries will then digitise the requested item and send it to the user via the EOD service network. The books digitised in this way will simultaneously be incorporated into the digital libraries of the participating libraries and thus be accessible on the Internet.
Books on Demand service is offered within the frame of „eBooks on Demand – A European Library Network“ project and provided by 23 libraries in 10 European countries. Research library in Olomouc, Moravian library in Brno, National technical library in Prague and Library of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic cooperate in the Czech Republic.
