Aggregating Ebooks into One Simple App: SimplyE in Public and Academic Libraries
Patrons seeking ebooks are saddled with multiple vendor interfaces. SimplyE makes the experience simpler for patrons. SimplyE creates a union catalog across major ebook aggregators, while hiding the aggravation of DRM.
The app was developed for public libraries, but development of academic functionality is on-going. Join representatives from two consortia that are supporting this project – one from the public library side and one from the academic. They will provide a technical overview, an update on both versions, and how successful they’ve been.
