Britannica E-STAX: new batch of MARC

Posted on September 11, 2015 at 2:47 PM by Lianne Flax

Information below is mostly for school libraries.  While public libraries are welcome to download the MARC records for Britannica E-STAX, please realize direct access can only work in-house-only.  Patrons at home will not be able to use the 856 link in these MARC records from your catalog.  Schools benefit from direct access & MARC records as it allows teachers & students an easy way to get to specific titles at school.  Britannica E-STAX is the only kids ebook system without school use restrictions. 

Not signed up for direct access yet?  Get your school’s public IP address(es) and email us at audiobooks@library.ks.gov If you signed up last year and your E-STAX links no longer work, please also send us your IPs.  They probably changed over the summer, this can be updated fairly easily.

New titles were added to Britannica E-STAX in July. 

Just want to take a peek at Britannica E-STAX, or place the main statewide link on your library website?  Please use http://kslib.info/estax.  This link has geo-location authentication built in.  Patrons recognized as being inside Kansas by their internet service provider will not need to login for access.
