Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
The Library of Virginia (Richmond, VA), in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books (Prince Frederick, MD), announces the availability of two exciting new electronic resources—Zinio and OneClickdigital. Zinio for Libraries, awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal, is the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications. OneClickdigital is an online service that allows patrons to download a wide range of audiobooks, including bestsellers, Recorded Books exclusives, classics, selections for children and young adults, and much more.
"The introduction of these exciting electronic resources allows us to reach out and serve the patrons of Virginia today and in the future as we embrace the digital age," said Carol Adams, Assistant Director, Library of Virginia.
Through the library’s website, patrons of The Library of Virginia have unlimited simultaneous access to over 200 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, and includes full color pictures, intuitive navigation, keyword article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. Good Housekeeping, National Geographic, O, The Oprah Magazine and Readers Digest are just a few of the popular titles available.
The Library of Virginia patrons also have free access to eAudio at home, in the library, or on the go with OneClickdigital. 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™. It features an easy-to-use interface with streamlined navigation, fast downloads, and automatic software updates. Live toll-free technical support is available for patrons who need assistance.
"The Library of Virginia is progressive and forward thinking as it continues to explore ways to support its patrons with resources that offer both a learning experience and a source of entertainment," said Matt Walker, Vice President, Recorded Books.
