Don’t forget, Recorded Books is offering an additional 10% discount for public libraries that would like to start participating in the Zinio shared collection in FY2017! The Zinio agreement runs from July 1, 2016 –June 30, 2017, so I’ll need to know by Friday, June 24 if you would like join the group. Wondering about pricing for your library? Send me an email and I’ll get you a quote.

We need your feedback! Zinio participants should also fill out this brief survey to help determine which magazines we should add to our shared collection in FY2017. We’ll add as many of the winners as we can and I’ll send out an updated list of our subscriptions in early July.

SHARE Cloud Library cart information for FY2017 will be arriving in your inbox by early next week. This time of year is a great time to clean up your carts in CAT. Please delete any carts that you no longer need by hovering over the name of each cart and clicking on the “x”.  You can also edit the name of any cart at any time, by hovering over the cart name and clicking on the pencil icon. If you have decided you would rather not use your shopping cart in FY2017, just let me know and I’ll add you to our “no cart” list.
