For Libraries

By eliminating subscription fees, the Open Access model and InTechOpen's flexible copyright policies allow libraries to connect readers to high quality content and expand their catalogues at no cost.

Libraries are permitted to link our database, to self-archive all or part of the content. They can also print or photocopy for the private use of patrons, provided that the original authors and the source are given credit.

InTechOpen supports the OAI Metadata Harvesting Protocol (OAI-PMH Version 2.0) as a Data Provider. This means of exposing metadata allows libraries to gather the metadata from our repository and add publications to their central database. To find out more about the Protocol please visit the OAI-PMH page.

Teaching staff are freely permitted to use the material for teaching, conference presentations, lectures and other non-commercial professional activities.

We invite librarians around the world to link to our content and, if necessary, contact us to provide their researchers with academic material that is accessible without financial or technical barriers.

To include our collection in your database, please consult the Linking Terms and Conditions and for questions contact us by email at

InTechOpen also offers the possibility of purchasing print copies of books. To read more about print options click here. If you are interested in ordering printed copies for your library, you can do so by contacting our Print Sales department at
