Amigos eShelf℠ Service
-by Christine Peterson, Amigos eShelfSM Service Manager
The Amigos eShelf℠ Service, the unique new e-book platform created by librarians for librarians, has been up and running since November 2015. Since then, we have been doing our best to get the word out about it to our member libraries through conferences, social media, direct email, and webinars. While all of this has been going on, however, we have not been idle on the development side.
An update on the launch of the Amigos eShelf℠ Service highlighted the November 12, 2015 meeting of the Amigos Board of Directors in Dallas. The e-book distribution platform, in development and testing for nearly two years, made its official debut November 2. The Board also heard updates on two member benefits it authorized last year: free RDA Toolkit subscriptions and free attendance at live online topical conferences for all Amigos members.
