CloudSource OA Pilot Program Available to Amigos Members

Whether your patrons are interested in the latest academic research, need resources for school projects or they are just interested in increasing their general knowledge, Amigos members can participate in pilot access to CloudSource OA, a new content platform from SirsiDynix that delivers vetted, quality open access (OA) articles, eTextbooks, and eBooks in an intuitive way to library users.

The CloudSource OA package also includes Course Lists, a software that facilitates library collaboration with faculty on affordable learning initiatives that emphasize library licensed and open materials. Amigos members will have free use of CloudSource OA through 2021 and receive ongoing discounts once the product is generally available.

SirsiDynixs’ goal is to give libraries the tools they need to make the wealth of OA content that is available across many disciplines available to library users.

CloudSource provides metadata enhancement to include relevant, authority-controlled headings, abstracts, and multiple links to source data. The result is a robust discovery and direct access to the digital items without broken links or multiple clicks. The consistent display within the UI makes it easy for users to find the article link and open the PDF immediately—without having to provide login credentials
