Ingram Grows its MyiLibrary® E-book Platform with 50,000 Additional Titles and New Functionality
As libraries adapt their collections and adjust their mix of print and digital content for patrons, Ingram Content Group Inc., today announced that it has grown its MyiLibrary platform, adding more than 50,000 titles and new functionality to meet the changing needs of today’s libraries.
“The MyiLibrary platform is one of the fastest-growing e-book access solutions in the library community today,” said Dan Sheehan, Vice President and General Manager, Ingram Content Group library services. “As the digital needs of libraries grow, we will continue to develop and reshape our title collections to provide our customers with the broadest and most comprehensive selection of content from the leaders in publishing today.”
More than 50,000 titles have been added to the MyiLibrary e-book platform since the beginning of the year. New titles include current bestsellers such as The Heist and Inferno, as well as premier content from academic publishers like Peter Lang Publishing Group. The MyiLibrary platform also includes new content from Random House imprints, including Melville House, Rizzoli New York, Seven Stories Press, Smithsonian Books, Soho Crime, and Steerforth Press, among others.
New functionality enhancements include the addition of an e-book loan access model, which makes the best use of resources to reduce a library’s number of turnaways. In addition, the MyiLibrary platform recently integrated with Readmill, an e-book reading app that provides patrons with additional flexibility to read content when, where and how they choose.
Used by more than 3,000 academic, professional and public libraries around the world, Ingram’s MyiLibrary platform provides a full range of resources and purchasing options from single-title acquisition to publisher and genre-specific subject collections. Ingram’s e-book solutions give libraries meaningful tools to make the best use of resources.
