I see all magazines going digital in the near future!
Burlington, CT (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Burlington Public Library has partnered with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD) to deliver two new electronic resources: Zinio for Libraries and OneClickdigital. Zinio for Libraries, awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal, is billed as the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications. OneClickdigital is an online service that allows patrons to check out eAudio and eBooks, including bestsellers, Recorded Books exclusives, classics and selections for children and young adults.
OneClickdigital provides patrons at Burlington Public Library free access to eAudio and eBooks at home, in the library, or anywhere with Internet access. Many titles are multi-access, so multiple users can check out a given title at the same time, eliminating holds. OneClickdigital is compatible with all popular listening devices, and mobile apps are available for the iPhone, Android, and Kindle Fire. OneClickdigital features an easy-to-use interface with streamlined navigation, fast downloads and automatic software updates. Live toll-free technical support is available at 1-877-77AUDIO.
Burlington Public Library patrons may now also visit the library’s website for unlimited simultaneous access to complete digital magazines. Zinio features complete, full-color, page-for-page magazines with intuitive navigation, key-word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. Periodicals can be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Burlington Public Library currently subscribes to 13 digital magazines including, “Country Gardens,” “National Geographic,” “Newsweek” and “Food Network”
“Once you get Zinio set up on your device, it is so nice and easy to get your digital magazines,” said Diana Rudzinski, Burlington Public Library Assistant Director. “You can read them any time you want with no returns to worry about, and with digital copies, you don’t have to worry about recycling your old printed magazines. I see all magazines going digital in the near future!”
