eBooks on the Go: ebrary Releases iOS App and Adds Facebook Login Option
From an ebrary Announcement:
Available on the App Store, the free new app gives researchers an optimized way to experience authoritative content – both online and offline – from multiple sources. With ebrary’s new app, researchers can access content on the ebrary platform, including e-books that their librarians acquire from leading publishers and documents uploaded and integrated by librarians with DASH! (Data Sharing, Fast). Additionally, researchers can import their own personal research – outside of the ebrary platform – through the app itself.
To make it easier to use ebrary – with or without the app – ebrary also announced the ability for researchers to sign-in with their Facebook usernames and passwords.
