We now have 161 library agencies (or 195 libraries) participating in the 3M Cloud library shared collection! You can view our current list of participants, here. Our collection has also broken another circulation record, with over 14,000 checkouts in the month of August!
Now that we’ve taken care of renewing our Zinio contract, we’re working to clean up our IHLS Landing page. In other words, we’re going to weed out some old and unused magazines so that our patrons have an easier time accessing the content they want! You can view a full list of the magazines we would like to remove, here. Many of these have circulated less than 30 times in the last year or are rather outdated. Questions or comments? Email Lesley before Monday, August 17.
SHARE member libraries using Wowbrary should have received a renewal notice via email by now. Renewal time means it is also a great time to START participating if you haven’t already! Wowbrary offers members of IHLS a 25% discount off of list price. For more information, visit the Wowbrary website or contact our rep: Jeff Levinsky. by August 16, 2015.
