A. Register for an account
Go to Library eCard Login above and sign in with your Kansas Library Card.
Choose the OneClickdigital registration link from the Digital Book eLending section.
You will be taken to the Create an Account screen. Fill out the form, some notes:
Username: pick something easy to type and remember, do not use spaces.
Password: minimum of 7 characters, use letters and numbers.
Zip code: please provide a 5-digit zip for statistical purposes.
Click the Create Account button once, and wait until your name appears in the right corner of the webpage, where the sign-in button was before.
When the software opens, enter the username & password you created during registration.
you may choose to have the software save your login information & auto-login for future use.
the software should associate you with the State Library of Kansas. For many people this will be automatic. If a drop-down appears asking you to select a library location, pick State Library of Kansas.
upon login, the software's checked out books area will be blank unless you have already checked out a book.
C. Set Preferences in the Media Manager: Click Preferences in the upper left corner to access this screen.
If you intend to only listen on the computer (not transfer) set as for a regular MP3 player.
Automatically download can be set however you wish. We prefer No, as files only download when we ask them to.
Regular MP3 Players
Occasionally, a Sony or Zen player works better with "Use MP3 format" set to Yes.
Transfer wait time - turn this up if you have a really old iPod.
Update iTunes - extra setting for iPods
With iTunes open, plug in your device.
Click on your device's name (usually in upper right side of iTunes).
Device Summary will appear. Scroll down to Options.
Make sure manually manage music and videos is turned on (box checkmarked).
Check Out a Book
In Media Manager, click the Browse for a title online! bar (black, upper right). This will open the OneClick website, where all checkouts are holds are placed. You will be logged in automatically.
Search or browse for a book. Our favorite way:
Go to Browse.
Click on either "All eAudio Titles" or "Genre" (and pick a subject) to start.
When the search pulls up, click on "Refine Search" (white bar at left).
In the refine bar, find "Availability" and check "Available." The search will refresh.
Every book with available copies will show. You can start looking through books now, or set more options like:
choose a genre (like mystery, romance) in the "Refine" box, if you did not start your search this way.
click on "Sort by" and switch that to Date Added. This puts the newest purchased books in your search first.
click on the "list view" button (small button with lines at upper right of book covers). This puts part of the summary next to the book cover, so you can see what they are about without clicking into each book.
When you have found a book, click the cover. The book's details are shown.
Use the Checkout Now button (if all copies are in use, the button is Hold). If your browser asks to download a file, click cancel.
Return to the Media Manager software. If your new checkout does not show yet, click the Refresh button.
Use a Book
Listen on the computer:
click the Play button for the book. The book will begin downloading to the computer, and start playing after a couple of chapters are downloaded.
pause, skip, or stop the book using the playback controls above the checked out list. The software will save your place in the book automatically.
Transfer to a device:
connect your device to the computer.
click the Download/Transfer button for the book.
wait until you receive a message that the download is complete before disconnecting your device.
Early Return and Renew - there are controls buttons for each checked out book in Media Manager. If another person is waiting on a book, you will not be able to renew it (button will not be clickable).
Holds - on the website, click into My Titles (from either Browse or by clicking your name on the right). You can view your current holds, see what place you are in line (and how many copies the library owns) and remove any you no longer want.
Need to update your account? When logged in, choose My Account (also under Browse or your name). You can update your email, change your password, and now even choose a different username.
