In case you haven’t heard, the redesigned SHARE website is now live at share.illinoisheartland.org! Under the eResources tab, you’ll find promotional items and information about group purchases. We’ll be adding more to the SHARE website in the coming weeks so you’ll want to check back often. Still to come – eResources training documentation underneath the training tab! If there is something more you would like to see on the website regarding eResources, please send me your feedback.
The transfer of items from the Lewis and Clark Digital Consortium into the SHARE Cloud Library is now complete. Over 11,500 items were added and the collection now contains a total of 38,062 (4,799 eAudiobooks and 33,263 eBooks).
Did you know that Zinio participants also have access to OneClickdigital through their annual Zinio subscription? OneClickdigital brings exclusive Recorded Books eAudio titles, as well as content from all major publishers, together with an eBook service. Libraries that belong to our Zinio consortium are welcome to purchase new titles for the OneClickdigital collection at any time. If you’re interested in adding titles to this collection, let me know and I’ll set up a shopping cart for you. Of note, some eAudiobooks through OneClickdigital can be transferred to an MP3 player!
