We provide management portals and services specially designed to assist librarians in the administration and transition to digital libraries.
Additionally the L-ON service streamlines and facilitates the service of acquiring monographs, ebooks, periodicals, databases and scientific articles.
Online access to digital goods, whether they are ebooks, databases or scientific articles, is
