Big changes have happened recently with our eBook collection. We have switched from Overdrive to 3M Cloud Library as our eBook provider due to the wider selection and more robust searching tool.
Overdrive has become unavailable to us. The new 3M Cloud Library, however, is available now and open to the public.
Stinson Library resources:
•3M Cloud Library – our new digital audio book and eBook source! (Still free!)
3M Cloud Library quick start guide
•Zinio – Over 1,000 free magazines (sponsored by Illinois Heartland Library System)
Zinio has gotten very little attention and has been used by very few patrons. We will soon be expanding our physical magazine collection as they seem to be in higher demand.
•OpenLibrary.ORG – Over 1,000,000 eBook titles free to loan
•Project Gutenberg – Offers over 50,000 eBooks free to keep
•Archive.ORG – Material with expired copyrights is ours for the taking
We are here to help!
Some of these websites need a digitally linked library account (if your account isn’t already set up for this call or stop by and we’ll be glad to help) to use. If you have any questions about these websites, our circulation staff can help with most questions. Some questions might need to be directed at Thomas, the technology coördinator, or Alexander, the circulation manager at our main branch.
Alternatively, you can leave a comment here and Thomas will try to respond quickly.
