Welcome back, everyone! With the Fall semester underway, we have some exciting new services in the Library we’d like to let you know about.
First, we now have eReaders. You can now check out from the library, for three weeks, a Kindle, Kindle Fire, or Nook Tablet. Books are preloaded on the readers! Please come check one out, and let us know what you think of this service.
We also have iPads which can be checked out for three weeks. In addition to all the other things an iPad can do, you can read books through the iBookstore, through the Kindle and eBrary apps, and more! We hope you will try them out with your own iTunes account, and again, let us know what you think of them.
We are also pleased to recommend both the eBrary and the Albion College Library apps for your personal mobile devices. We currently have access to over 75,000 ebooks through eBrary – using the mobile app in conjunction with BlueFire reader or Adobe Digital Editions, you can download and read all of these books on many mobile devices. The Library app offers basic information about the library and also allows you to search the catalog, and is available through the Apple App Store. Check our Apps and Plugins page for download links and more information.
Finally, we have a new Text-A-Librarian service. If you have a question for a librarian, and you’re away from your computer or across campus, you can text us during reference hours at 856-2LIBREF (856-254-2733). For more details, check out our Ask-A-Librarian page.
