Total Boox for Academics

Posted to Librarian News on July 22, 2016 at 12:40 PM by Lianne Flax

Yesterday we hosted a webinar for academic librarians on Total Boox ebooks. The presenter was Mirela Roncevic, Director of Content at Total Boox.  Watch the archive here.

The Total Boox ebooks system has access to the full catalog of materials from trusted publishers such as Elsevier, O'Reilly Media, Oxford Press, and Packt; making it useful to the academic patrons.
  • your patrons will need a Kansas Library eCard and a mobile device (iOS, Android, Kindle Fire).  No computer use is available at this time. 
  • Checkouts do not expire and patrons can checkout as many materials as they would like, so students do not need to worry about limits during their semester.
A student flier has been added to the Total Boox promo page, where you will also find Mirela's contact information for the librarian newsletter and short videos on how to create your own shelves of materials on Total Boox (as mentioned in the webinar).
