3M Cloud Library becoming Cloud Library

Posted on September 15, 2016 at 1:41 PM by Lianne Flax

Post updated 9/15 for more specific timeline.
About a year ago, the 3M Library Section merged with another company, Bibliotheca. 3M Cloud Library is one of the products involved. They have been slowly moving to new servers, etc, but now it is actually time to update the product name and app icon. Current timeline is:
  • Android, ChromeBook, and Kindle Fire apps - September 19
  • iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) - September 20
  • Computer software – week of October 3rd. Exact date not yet known. 
What's changing?
The name of the app will become just "Cloud Library" and the icon will change to this new art.  You may see the name Bibliotheca in "about us" sections of the app. No functionality will change.  Checkout, browse, reading will all remain the same.

What do I need to do?

Update your software or app when the new version for your device is available. We will post again when the new versions are released.
  • Android, iOS (iPad/iPhone), ChromeBooks– update your app when prompted by the device.
  • Computers (Windows or Mac) – the software will notify you that it has downloaded the new version the first time you open it after the update. Closing & reopening your software should allow it to finish installing.
  • Kindle Fires – due to the way these devices work, you will need to uninstall the app and download a fresh copy. Notes on this will be posted when the new version is available.
