3M Cloud Library is an industry leader in advancing technology in the eLending market and is currently available in more than 1,000 libraries in the U.S. and Canada. The Content Acquisition Tool allows librarians to easily curate their own collection from a catalog with several hundred thousand eBooks and eAudiobooks.
Once patrons have been issued their library unique PIN to log in to the 3M Cloud Library service, they can choose, check out and read or listen to titles in three ways:
• Use smartphones and tablets with the dedicated 3M Cloud Library apps.
• Via their PCs or Macs.
• Side-load on to their Nook, Sony or Kobo dedicated e-readers.
“Libraries across the world are increasingly faced with the challenge of how they can meet the needs of technologically-savvy patrons, who expect digital services that ‘just work,’” said Matt Tempelis, global business leader, 3M Library Systems. “We created 3M Cloud Library to be easy for libraries to manage and a dream for readers to use, and have seen tremendous growth.”
