Ingram Adds New Ebook Lending Model to MyiLibrary e-Content Platform
From an Ingram Announcement:
Ingram Content Group today announced it has added a new content access model to its MyiLibrary e-content platform to provide libraries greater flexibility in e-book lending.
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 popular acquisition models including Perpetuity, Patron Selection and Short-Term Loan.
