Private Hosting - Academic

Last Updated: Sep 08, 2017 01:13PM EDT


Private Hosting allows for submission of DRM or any other content specific to an Institution to be hosted beside their desLibris Content.

For Example: Institutions can have courseware they own uploaded to the desLibris for encryption to both the desLibris proprietary DRM and the Sony DRM standards. This would then allow the content to be viewed both online an in the eReader solutions available for iOS and Android.

Please contact if you wish to enable Private Hosting for your Institution.
