Minitex to enhance eBook app

Library users will more easily access eBooks across multiple systems thanks to SimplyE, a free app from phones and tablets that is being further developed at Minitex.

SimplyE, developed by the New York Public Library, eliminates the need for a user to switch between multiple eBook vendor apps to access collections from a single library.  Minitex developers will enhance the functionality to allow users to access eBooks from their public library, their college library, and other shared collections. The work is funded by a $695,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
