What is this "SimplyE" You've Been Hearing About?

Over the past few years, you may have heard or seen us talk about "SimplyE." This is a service we have been working on and it is now an official Amigos service, available to our member libraries as well as non-members.

SimplyE is an app that gathers ebooks and audiobooks from multiple vendors into a single, easy-to-use interface for your patrons. Instead of using a different app for each e-content service, patrons (and your library staff) need only use one.

Currently, the e-content available for this app is public library-focused, e.g., Overdrive, Axis 360, CloudLibrary, Odilo, RB Digital, Biblioboard, and the DPLA Exchange, with more vendors on the way. Work is also being done to include functionality and e-content necessary for academic library patrons.

Being an open source solution - if your library has the technical expertise - you could host SimplyE yourself. If not, Amigos is available as one of the official hosting providers and will host for members and non-members across the United States.
