The California State Library, in partnership with the Black Gold Cooperative Library System, has launched eBooks for All California. Created to equalize access across California, this statewide collection can be accessed by anyone with a California public library card and an internet connection.
Participating public libraries will offer their cardholders access to the free, shared statewide collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks, many of which are simultaneous use. Libraries can make their Overdrive, CloudLibrary, and Axis 360 collections available alongside the statewide collection, all in one seamless, searchable app.
Users will no longer have to toggle between different providers to see the breadth of a library’s offerings, instead they can access all through the Palace Project’s eReader app. Libraries can simplify the way their users find their eBooks at the same time as expanding their collection with the statewide catalog of over 70,000 titles.
