Watermarking introduced to On Demand

Journal front page with British Library Watermark

British Library On Demand has introduced watermarking to enable the extension of unencrypted supply to a wider customer base.

Published date:

Watermarking will assist the article recipients in their awareness of the source of the articles proving they have been supplied by a trusted third party source, rather than supplied via a non-publisher approved mechanism.  There will also be added security as non-permitted use of content can be tracked.

Having consulted with publishers, we have developed a functionality which means articles delivered by our service include a watermark, specifying the document was delivered by the British Library and the date and time of delivery.

For more information on watermarking, you can contact our Customer Services team or follow On Demand on twitter.
