Predictable subscription costs eliminate surprises and put you in control of your digital spend while eliminating frustrating monthly limits for patrons. Exponentially increase your collection with cloudLink Whether or not you elect to add NewsStand, Comics Plus, or biblio+, cloudLibrary’s unique content sharing program, cloudLink, lets you affordably expand the breadth and depth of your eBook and eAudiobook collection, increase circulation of lesser used titles, and decrease hold times on popular materials. Markedly different from traditional consortia, cloudLink allows libraries to share eBooks and eAudio with neighbouring libraries while retaining control of the selection, purchase, presentation, and reservation of their own eContent. You still select and purchase titles that are best for your patrons and then share those titles only when they are not being used by your library members. When you buy new content, your users are prioritised and gain first access, ensuring your library budget goes to your local community. Robust reporting clearly shows who is borrowing from whom, and your library retains control over key settings such as loan and holds period and pay-per-use parameters.

Mobile checkout makes the cloudLibrary app relevant for print borrowers – providing convenient, touchless self-checkout while exposing new users to your digital offerings.
