TumbleBooks - update links today!

Posted on August 24, 2015 at 11:40 AM by Lianne Flax

One more reminder to update your TumbleBooks links!  Our authentication for Tumblebooks changes tomorrow, August 25.  Any previous link to TB will stop working tomorrow.

Public Libraries, please make sure your TumbleBooks link is:

This link contains the same geolocation security as used on the statewide database links.  Any patron that the system does not recognize as “Kansas” will be asked to login with a Kansas Library eCard.

Have EZ Proxy or an ILS like Biblionix Apollo, which allows your patrons to login with a local card to access statewide products easily?  Contact and we’ll get you set up for the new TumbleBooks authentication.  Sorry, no local statistics can be extracted from TumbleBooks, but if you have local trackers set up for your website/ILS you’ll be able to do this yourself.  

School Libraries: please remember that that the statewide TumbleBooks account is the public library subscription!  This does not include curriculum licensing, so you may not use this product in class but kids are allowed to use it during their free reading time. Please do not link directly to TumbleBooks for this reason, direct kids to instead.
