Thomson Reuters and Lucidea Library Management Solutions now make it easier to find and access Thomson Reuters ProView™ eBook titles through an exciting new integration.
Thomson Reuters has entered into a strategic relationship with Lucidea, the leading global provider of library and knowledge management software, to provide integrated access for organizations worldwide to the collection of authoritative digital titles on ProView through Lucidea’s market-leading library management solutions (LMS).
Thomson Reuters ProView is a proprietary, market-leading eBook platform for legal and tax professionals. The new relationship will combine Lucidea’s SydneyEnterprise and Inmagic GeniePlus LMS with ProView, allowing instant access to ProView and its features that are specifically designed for professional use, such as navigation, annotation and sharing capabilities within digital libraries and titles.
The integration allows users to search for ProView content without leaving their library catalog. Users search for a title and view the title’s record. Contained on the record view is a direct link to the ProView eBook. When users click the link, they are connected with the electronic version of the title and it opens in the ProView app on their device. Adding new titles is easy as SydneyEnterprise automatically synchronizes content from the ProView account.
“This exciting new library management system integration will help deliver the right ProView content to the right people at the right time,” said Helen Elardo, vice president and global head of ProView at Thomson Reuters. “Lucidea’s solutions fit very well with our open integration strategy. ProView Integration APIs enable services like Lucidea to discover eBooks available to the user from the library catalog, and present results in ProView’s rich reading experience and functionality.”
“Integrating ProView with Lucidea’s library automation and knowledge management applications enables users to enjoy one-stop access to the full portfolio of information assets licensed by law firms and professional services clients, no matter where those assets reside,” stated Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO. “We believe that everything we do must reflect our commitment to improving access, discovery, and integration; this new strategic relationship with Thomson Reuters ProView embodies those values and is a very natural fit that will provide significant benefit to users.”
ProView eBooks are published in seven languages across five continents, and available for iPad® and AndroidTM tablets, SurfaceTM tablets and for Windows® and Mac® computers through both browsers and an installed app.
