Open Infrastructure

Our applications are built for interoperability so libraries can choose the best possible solutions for their users.


Choosing the best possible services

Within an open infrastructure, interoperability is key. Through interoperable platforms, libraries can choose and provide the best possible services for their users. We ensure that our platforms are open for integrating third-party services such as ILL, preservation systems, campus solutions, integrated library systems, authentication services, learning management systems, content purchasing services and more.

Donna Shaw, Product Manager at EBSCO, discusses how EBSCO approaches integrations with third-party products, systems and services. In this video, Donna looks at interoperability with education technology platforms and learning management systems in particular to enable access to information for faculty, students and researchers alike.
