Ames, Iowa (PRWEB) October 21, 2013

Ames Public Library (Ames, IA), in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), is pleased to announce the availability of Zinio for Libraries. Awarded Best New Database of 2012 by “Library Journal”, Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications.

Through the library’s website, patrons of Ames Public Library have unlimited multi-user access to complete digital magazines, which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. “The Economist”, “Us Weekly”, “Rolling Stone”, “National Geographic”, and “Popular Science” are just a few of the popular magazines that are available.

“We’re excited to see magazines join books and audiobooks in our e-library,” said Ames Librarian Emilyn Linden. “Personally, I love browsing magazines on my tablet, and it’s great to have some light reading material with me wherever I go.”
