Today, there are great apps and platforms for just about everything, but many library products have lagged behind with clunky, confusing user interfaces that frustrate patrons.
Enter: BiblioBoard®, a ReadersFirst friendly mobile library that handles all types of content in a seamless user experience. Books, historical databases, audio and video are all available through one outstanding and simple interface. BiblioBoard continuously upgrades to meet new device operating standards and handles all media types. It just works.
The web and new technologies are changing the way in which scholarship and local history are created and shared. Libraries have always been trusted providers of information services and are now uniquely positioned to extend that role by digitizing and publishing their assets. Built with this in mind, BiblioBoard provides the perfect platform for a smooth transition.
In addition to millions of pages of curated historical content from the world's leading cultural institutions, we also have content from leading publishers. Our ever-expanding list includes university press, Spanish language and young adult content, as well as children's books, graphic novels and more from leading publishers. You can even license your own content on your own terms and load that onto BiblioBoard, so you are not wedded to a delivery interface in the way current systems operate.
Covering a wide range of topics—including Literature, Philosophy, History, Geography and Science—BiblioBoard Core contains over 300 Anthologies (over 10,000 full text e-books and over 20,000 pieces of primary source content) and will grow up to 400 Anthologies by March 2014. To browse all the Anthologies, set up a free trial account today.
Libraries may also subscribe to content modules created by our partner institutions. Featuring 15 Anthologies and thousands of books from one of the world's premier libraries, the British Library Module will continue to grow over time and offers unparalleled insight into 19th-century life around the globe. Many of the books included in these collections are not available anywhere else online.
