Heron provides a service for UK academic institutions that wish to provide online access to student readings. Increasingly students today are working part time or are distance learners. They often study off campus and want quick and easy access to learning materials. Higher and Further Education Institutions are responding by providing access to electronic texts and developing virtual learning environments (VLEs). Heron primarily deals with book and journal extracts. It has developed a resource bank of over 2.5 million digitised extracts for rapid re-use (subject to copyright permissions). Heron also offers its subscribers experience and strength in negotiations with publishers and other rightsholders. (Excerpt from this source)
