Information for Publishers

Customers have reacted very positively to the LibriAccess concept. Developed in close cooperation with librarians, this service enables each customer to easily access all of their online subscriptions ordered through Karger Libri.

So far, access has been provided from the publisher directly to the customer by entering the customer's IP address or by giving them a specific password or user ID.

Our aim is to facilitate access procedures for the customer by providing access directly from the customers LibriAccess list of online subscriptions, i.e. once the customer clicks the journal link, access to fulltext will be granted automatically.

Since the primary access would be from our network, your network would need to recognise our IP address and simultaneously allow access under the forwarded customer IP address. We would also need to receive the user ID or password for online access if this would be required for online access.

Of course, we understand the publishers need for complete user identification as well as your concerns about safety precautions to prevent access from unauthorised users. We can assure all publishers that user identification would be provided and that we would be willing to discuss your requirements for safety measures. All technical aspects would best be discussed directly between your specialists and ours.
