    The Linguistic Bibliography Online is a cross-searchable linguistic database with over 300.000 records and 20.000 titles arranged according to a detailed state-of-the-art classification. The migration from stand alone platform to integration into will allow users the ability to search all Brill's extensive bibliography content at once.

SAMS is the most widely used access management system in its class and integrates seamlessly with Scolaris to control access across users and institutions, as well as providing a host of flexible options for business models and optimal monetisation of content.
