Listen Up! 3M Cloud Library Adds eAudiobooks, 40K Titles Currently Available
The new audiobook service is launching with 40,000 titles available to Cloud Library partners. 3M Cloud Library audiobooks are powered by Findaway World based in Aurora, Ohio.
The new service will be demonstrated at the Public Library Association Conference in Indianapolis next week.
The addition of eAudiobooks to the 3M Cloud Library will be a seamless transition for both readers and librarians, with the existing apps updated and optimized to include discovery, checkout and listening capabilities.
Every eAudio title will be compatible on all devices using 3M Cloud Library applications, users will not have to differentiate which formats work on which devices. Once the eAudiobook is checked out, users can immediately start listening. Also for the user’s benefit, eAudiobooks are automatically bookmarked across the Cloud and available across all devices.
Titles from Findaway World are professionally engineered, enabling the highest-quality listening experience for users. Through Findaway World, 3M will have content from every major publisher in the Audiobook space.
