What is EHESS for Further Education?
We have partnered with the British Library to deliver an efficient, cost-effective and streamlined document supply service. The EHESS service was initially launched in the HE sector, but, after expressions of interest from Further Education institutions, we’re delighted to be able to offer the platform to this sector too.
With EHESS for Further Education, FEIs are able to take advantage of:
- Copyright-fee-paid (CFP) or scan-only options
Note that purchasing a CFP means that your institution owns the material and it can sit in your library stock as any other purchase would. If the material is included in the CLA Licence, you are also covered to copy from the CFP as per the normal terms and conditions.
- Digital Rights Management (DRM)-free material
- Scans of a high quality using preservation-standard workflow
- Optical Character Recognition (OCR) as standard
- Full metadata
- Most scans delivered within 48 hours
