EoD : eBook on Demand Service

The Library offers a unique service consisting in digitizing a whole book or any other library item upon the user request. The service delivers the user an eBook with the possibility of OCRed text layer. The service is aimed at books and materials out of copyright.

What is an EoD eBook
An EOD eBook is a single fulltext pdf file of a public domain book digitised at the user’s request.
If applicable, the file contains the image of the scanned original book as well as the automatically recognised full text. Any marks, notations and other notes in the margins present in the original volume will also appear in this file.
The service is open to anyone and is not limited by the registration in the Library.

The service has been designed for items (e. g. books) in the public domain, items standing out of the Copyright law. Therefore works printed after 1949 are excluded for the service.

How to order
Wherever you find the EoD button in the online catalogue, simply click on it and you are taken to the EoD order form and guided through the ordering process. After the submission of the order you receive a confirmation e-mail and you are able to track your order during the digitisation process at your personal tracking page.

What is the EoD eBook on Demand Service
The EOD service was started within the framework of the project "Digitisation on Demand" co-funded by the eTEN programme line. This EU project was launched in October 2006 with 13 libraries from eight European countries and ran until June 2008. By July 2008, a self-sustained network was established with these 13 libraries as founding members. Since then, other libraries from other countries have also been continuously joining the network. From May 2009 until April 2013, EOD was co-financed by the EC under the Culture Programme and other 20 libraries from 10 European countries take part in this follow-up project. Now, the network counts up to 38 libraries from 14 European countries.
