Digital Content Store

We’ve worked with higher education institutions (HEIs), publishers and technology partners to develop an optional innovative web-based platform called the Digital Content Store, or as we call it, the DCS. The system combines a searchable repository of digitised book and journal extracts with an online workflow management tool. With the DCS, you’ll be able to:

  • Verify ownership 
  • Check permissions
  • Eliminate census reporting
  • Automate requirement checks
  • And share and use content from other HEIs

The benefits of choosing the DCS

  • Integrates with major library management systems and reading list solutions to provide one streamlined tool
  • Reduces your administrative burden by automating weeding and streamlining renewals
  • Guaranteed to deliver definitive permissions regarding included and excluded titles, giving you total copyright compliancy assurance
  • Links with your EHESS account for seamless ordering and fulfilment of your Copyright Fee Paid and outsourced scanning orders
  • Join a community of over 65 UK HEIs that are already populating a rich repository resources that you’ll be able to use and add to

If you are interested in joining the DCS community, but are unsure about how your institution could integrate with the system, then why not have a look at our list of DCS User Technologies to find out which institutions are already benefitting and the different technologies they use in their integrations.

(This list only shows customers who have agreed to share information with us.)


You can also take a look at this case study from Middlesex University, to see how the DCS fit in to their library service; or read this blog from the University of York to see how the system positively impacted the management of their library.
