Content Collaboration: Customizing E-Book Viewers for Library Patrons

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The development of Occam's Reader has been a watershed moment for academic libraries and interlibrary loan. One of the unintended outcomes from the Occam's Reader system is an opportunity to partner with a publisher and use its content in a library-developed viewer. This process is termed content collaboration. Content collaboration is simply the use of publisher-provided content in a presentation platform, a viewer that the library develops or customizes. The customization of the viewer is a tremendous opportunity for the academic library to develop a viewing platform that can directly address the unique expectations and concerns at the user's home institution.
