The East Hampton Library is proud to announce that it will offer free access to BiblioBoard Library to all library patrons. Whether patrons are interested in comics and graphic novels, popular fiction, children’s books, young adult novels, history, science or art, BiblioBoard Library’s diverse digital content holds something for everyone.
BiblioBoard Library is an easy-to-use platform that allows us to offer high-quality content to patrons on the web and on eReaders. Supporting books, articles, documents, images, audio and video, BiblioBoard Library is host to content from traditional publishers, indie authors, cultural institutions and local thought leaders. Users can access BiblioBoard Library through the library’s website or on the device of their choice, including the iPad®, iPad® mini, Kindle Fire® HD, Galaxy Tab ®, Nexus® and more.
SELF-e is an innovative collaboration between Library Journal and BiblioBoard® that enables authors and libraries to work together to expose notable self-published eBooks to eager readers looking to discover something new. Using SELF-e, The East Hampton Library will be able to take submissions from its local indie authors and make those eBooks available to any participating library across New York State on BiblioBoard’s award-winning Patrons First™ platform. Libraries can make these eBooks available with no checkouts or returns and no multi-user limitations.
Indie authors who submit their work to East Hampton Library also have the opportunity to opt-in to have their book selected by Library Journal editors to become part of a unique discovery platform for participating libraries across the United States & Canada. This emerging indie discovery platform enables patrons to read eBooks on any device, at any time.
“Leading indie authors agree that discovery and building an audience of readers is the biggest challenge faced by Indie authors. This program marries a great eBook experience with the validation of the most respected library review resource in the world. The result is a program that is built to drive author discovery in their local communities and in libraries around the country,” says Mitchell Davis founder and Chief Business Officer of BiblioBoard.
