From a continuum Blog Post:

Following a two-year pilot, readership of Ebooks Minnesota, a free online book collection available to all Minnesotans, is taking off.

The Ebooks Minnesota collection — managed by Minitex at the University of Minnesota — saw an 86 percent increase in readership during its second year. Through April 2018, out of 4,000 available ebooks in the collection, Minnesotans of all ages have connected to an ebook a total of 158,868 times.


Part of the overall growth in use of Ebooks Minnesota can be attributed to the December 2017 launch of Ebooks Minnesota for Schools. In the first five months, a total of 35,695 ebooks were accessed via Ebooks Minnesota for Schools.

The Ebooks Minnesota collection is powered by technology from biblioboard.
