Endeavor Information Systems is pleased to announce the first general release of ENCompass for Journals OnSite (EJOS), a sophisticated new system for locally storing and providing a single point of access to electronic journal content from any publisher. Using EJOS, libraries can locally load the full text journal content they license, and enable their end users to search, browse, and view journal articles through one standard user interface.
Beta testing of EJOS was completed earlier this year with the Canada Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI), a scientific research organization [Note: Actually a national science library would be more accurate]. The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) recently installed EJOS at the University of Toronto (UT), where EJOS will support access to electronic journal content for OCUL's twenty member libraries as part of the cooperative Ontario Scholars Portal Project. Other libraries and organizations around the world – in the United States, Italy, Germany, Turkey, China, and elsewhere – are also turning to EJOS for local electronic journal storage and access.
