The Massachusetts Library System has created an eBook platform for the entire state of Massachusetts, the Mass eBook Project. Cambridge has been chosen as a pilot location so that patrons can test out this new website.
Included in this great new resource is Biblioboard, an ecosystem that allows libraries and cultural institutions around the world to be able to curate, share and interactively explore information. Biblioboard covers a wide range of topics, including Literature, Philosophy, History, Geography and Science. Browse interesting and rare materials, everything from comics to portions of the British Library’s collection. A search for Cambridge brought up all kinds of interesting results that you can see here.
In addition to Biblioboard, Cambridge Public Library patrons can search the Mass eBook Project to download books from:
Axis 360 from Baker and Taylor, the world’s largest distributor of books, digital content and entertainment products, provides materials that are completely ADA compliant and offers bestselling fiction and non-fiction reading material.
EBL: EBL offers content across all academic and professional subject areas and features nearly 350,000 titles from hundreds of academic publishers, including the Dummies series and kids books.
