3M Library Systems announces the launch of the newest innovation to its 3M Cloud Library Digital Lending System—eAudiobooks. Debuting with 40,000 titles powered by Findaway World, a premier provider of digital audiobook technology and delivery, the 3M Cloud Library will have an extensive collection of high quality eAudio titles. 3M will detail the new offerings at the Public Library Association (PLA) 2014 Conference, March 11-15 in Indianapolis, Ind.
The addition of eAudiobooks to the 3M Cloud Library will be a seamless transition for both readers and librarians, with the existing apps updated and optimized to include discovery, checkout and listening capabilities. As always, patrons only need to register to use the 3M Cloud Library through their local library the first time they sign in. Every eAudio title will be compatible on all devices using 3M Cloud Library applications, users will not have to differentiate which formats work on which devices. Once the eAudiobook is checked out, users can immediately start listening. Also for the user’s benefit, eAudiobooks are automatically bookmarked across the Cloud and available across all devices.
Titles from Findaway World are professionally engineered, enabling the highest-quality listening experience for users. Through Findaway World, 3M will have content from every major publisher in the Audiobook space.
To introduce the new eAudiobook content, 3M will be giving away earbuds to anyone who attends a presentation at its booth, number 1303, on Thursday, March 13 and Friday, March 14. In addition to receiving free earbuds, booth presentation attendees will also be entered to win a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre ® Special Edition Ellen Wireless headphones, as featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.Presentations will include: Heather McCormack, collection development manager for 3M Cloud Library, speaking on “A Unique Approach to Collection Development,” and the benefits of curated lists;
