How to Request Materials
If you would like to request this or other materials from the State Library of Kansas, please use your library’s established interlibrary loan process. Normally we purchase a single copy. You may be placed on a hold list for several weeks if our only copy is checked out.

[ARCHIVED] 3M Cloud Library becoming "Cloud Library"

The original item was published from September 9, 2016 11:27 AM to September 15, 2016 1:41 PM

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. Exact dates not yet known, current timeline is:
  • Mobile apps & ChromeBooks – week of September 19th.
  • Computer software – week of October 3rd.
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.
