Course Details
Course Description

Created by a partnership of libraries across the country, and led by The New York Public Library, SimplyE gives you access to the national ebook and digital audiobook library lending program. SimplyE is the reading app that makes it easy to browse, borrow, and read ebooks or listen to digital audiobooks in your library's collection on your mobile device.

This free session is an introduction to SimplyE, the open source app built by libraries for libraries. We will discuss reasons libraries have implemented this app, demonstrate how patrons are using it, the state of the national project, and how a library can set it up for their patrons with Amigos.

Although not yet available, work is being done on providing academic functionality and content. Stop in to see why we're so excited to bring this service to libraries – both members and non-members.

Learning Objectives
  • Become familiar with functionality within SimplyE
  • List e-resource vendors used by your library that are in the app
