Print books and eBooks in a single acquisitions workflow for libraries
CoInfo offers libraries the convenience of eBook acquisition, integrating CoInfo's print books with eBooks from the major publishers.
Libraries prefer to make an informed choice of format (eBook, paperback, hardback). At CoInfo, we provide these choices in one place - pst.coop.com.au - offering a single entry discovery, selection and acquisition workflow that provides library staff with all the necessary details to make informed decisions easily. Our linking of print books, single eBooks, and eBook collections in our website helps libraries avoid duplication.
