Great news Zinio members! After working with RBdigital to correct our FY2016 invoice, we now have some extra dollars to spend on new magazine subscriptions for the collection. Of course, we need your feedback. Please fill out this brief survey to let us know which titles you would like to see added. All titles included in the survey have been suggested to us by library staff members and patrons. In other words, they’ve been on our wish list awhile now! The survey can be accessed via the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5RYFF25
We’ve added a couple of new 3M Cloud Library videos to the SHARE website. For our school library members, we’ve added a condensed version of the basic demo. Feel free to share with students and faculty. 3M Cloud Library participants will also find a video detailing the app download process for the 1st few generations of the Kindle Fire. You’ll find training videos listed under Circulation and Training.
