About 123Library

123library is a universal e-book platform that works with every recent computer system or mobile devices. Our web-based eBook reader preserves the original formatting of the page as published in print, and gives you a clear and crisp image regardless of the complexity of the book. It is ideal for educational, academic and reference titles.

Rather than purchasing an expensive eBook reader that may rapidly become obsolete and will make you dependent on one eBook supplier, try our universal platform, and be sure that your computer or mobile device will always be suitable.

We pride ourselves in being able to provide libraries and corporations with great flexibility and innovative business models that best suit their needs. We offer great value for money, while remunerating publishers fairly and in full compliance with copyright laws and publishers' recommended pricing.

We continue to develop strong partnerships with leading publishers such as Informa Healthcare, Manson, Royal Society of Medicine, Radcliffe, Jessica Kingsley, Hodder Education, Dunedin Academic Press, American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, Sage Publications, Elsevier, Wiley Blackwell and ASM Press. We add hundreds of eBooks on a monthly basis to increase the online content range for our eBook subscribers.

“Seit einigen Jahren arbeiten wir als Distributor für die 123Library. Verschiedene institutionelle Kunden haben Titel mit Campus-Lizenzen erworben. Die Abwicklung der Bestellungen durch das 123Library Team waren immer zügig und problemlos. Bisher haben wir nicht eine einzige Reklamation von unseren Kunden erhalten. Die Nutzung und die Stabilität der Plattform scheint fehlerfrei zu sein. Wir führen 123Library weiter gern in unserem Portfolio und bieten es Kunden aktiv an.”
— Klaus Tapken, Missing Link Versandbuchhandlung eG
