iThèque offers the first ever French-speaking multimedia platform of secured online loan created for libraries and their users. Its catalog includes musical artworks, audio books, electronic books, videos and games.
iThèque offers online loan service and multimedia listening post. Both of these aspects are dynamically conducted and managed by the librarians. Interactive and user-friendly management tools are available, allowing users to customize the offered service.
iTheque complements the existing physical libraries catalogues.
Available artworks can be read or listened online or can be directly downloaded. Artworks are « chronodegradable »: they cannot be consulted after a specified period of time.
iThèque also encourages libraries to put their own content online in order to promote the local cultural scene.
iThèque is continuously available for everyone, from everywhere, and at any time. The platform's interactive tools allow librarians to upgrade and to consolidate the link between the library and its subscribers.
Each customer gets a unique, customized portal that gives access to the service. The setting, hosting and maintenance of the platform and its contents are managed and taken in charge by our professional team.
iThèque includes multiple browsing and managing tools for both users (subscribers) and managers (librarians in charge of the management and the interactivity of the service).
