PCPL launches E-books

Saturday, February 11, 2012

The Putnam County Library has announced that Baker and Taylor's Axis 360 digital media library or E-books is now available for its patrons.

Axis 360 is a revolutionary digital media platform, providing libraries and their patrons with a state-of-the-art system for circulating E-book content and Blio, the groundbreaking e-Reading software.

Libraries using the Axis 360 service benefit from the latest web technologies and cloud-based delivery to mobile devices.

Patrons at PCPL will enjoy the dynamic presentation of titles on the Axis 360 Magic Wall, the ease of locating books of interest via browse by subject pages, as well as guidance provided via book reviews and recommendations for further reading. Axis 360 also improves the user experience for borrowing digital content from the library.

Blio provides cloud-based delivery, which greatly simplifies the process of downloading what patrons want to read onto their devices. Blio currently works on Windows PCs, tablets and smart phones, i-product (iOS 4.0 and higher), Android 2.2 and higher devices and the Color Nook. Additional device compatibility, including other Nooks, Kobo, Sony Reader and Kindle, will be available at a later date.

For more information, persons may contact the reference desk at 653-2755, ex. 124, log on to the website at www.putnam.lib.in.us or visit the library at 103 E. Poplar St., Greencastle, for assistance.
