  • This event has passed.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 30th from 2-4pm to learn more about the eRead Illinois grant project from the Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) and the Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS).

This is a two-year grant project made possible with funding provided by the Secretary of State through the Illinois State Library. The grant was developed to increase access to e-books for Illinois residents and grow e-book expertise among library staff, library system staff, and Illinois residents.

There will also be a live demonstration of the Baker and Taylor Axis 360 digital content platform with information about how patrons will access the shared collection, technical aspects of authentication, compatible reading devices, ADA compliance and options for adding your own local e-book titles to compliment the shared collection, among other topics.

This is an opportunity to ask and all questions about Axis 360 digital content platform and participation in the eRead Illinois grant.

Presenters include: Veronda J. Pitchford, eRead Illinois Project Director and Curt Leppert, Baker & Taylor Illinois Sales Consultant

This unique and special event will take place in the Carnegie room of the Lincoln Library in Springfield, Illinois.

ALL are welcome to attend!
We hope to see you there.
