Expanded Access to E-books Through BiblioBoard Library

RAILS is partnering with BiblioLabs to bring an exciting new e-book collection to Illinois libraries and residents. BiblioBoard Library provides geolocation-based authentication through the IP address of the user's computer or GPS coordinates of their mobile device.

Anyone who is physically in Illinois can access the collection without a login. All titles are for simultaneous use, so items in the collection can be read by one or 100 patrons at the same time. This means no hold queues and no waiting for titles, making it an ideal collection for reading groups, public library/school partnerships, etc.
