Ingram adds new e-book lending model to MyiLibrary

As more libraries develop digital programs as part of their core offering, Ingram Content Group (www.ingramcontent.com) has added a new content access model to its MyiLibrary e-content platform to provide libraries greater flexibility in e-book lending.

"As use of our MyiLibrary solution grows, our ongoing development of the platform continues to be driven in a large part by industry growth and direct library and patron feedback," says Dan Sheehan, vice president and general manager, Ingram Content Group library services. "Patron usage of e-books continues to climb, and the addition of our new multi-user concurrent Access Model gives libraries the flexibility to meet the content requirements of their patrons, and manage budgets effectively."

MyiLibrary's newest model, its Access Model, enables libraries to purchase a set of access credits for an e-book and lend it simultaneously to multiple patrons for a set cost, and lending period. For libraries, the model can easily eliminate turnaways due to concurrent use, and provides libraries with a relevant tool to make the most out of high usage titles.  The Access model is compatible MyiLibrary's other acquisition models including Perpetuity, Patron Selection and Short-Term Loan.  

Ingram's MyiLibrary platform provides a single source for content hosting, archiving, discovery, access and purchasing. More than 3,000 academic, professional, and public libraries around the world have integrated the platform into daily lending activities, and have access to more than 400,000 titles that cover all major disciplines. Using the platform, library patrons can read content online, or download to a computer, laptop or digital device.
