Starting this school year, we have a subscription to a Massachusetts Statewide eBook initiative called Commonwealth eBooks. Using one search, Commonwealth eBooks gives you access to three eBook platforms.
Baker & Taylor’s Axis 360 includes many fiction and non-fiction bestsellers, and allows you to download full-length books to the eReader of your choice (for example, Kindle, phone or tablet – more on this below).
Biblioboard Library includes primary sources, historical documents, audio and video.
Use EBL to discover resources for research as well as personal interest.
In addition to a small subscription price we pay, Commonweath eBooks is funded by the Massachusetts Library System.
Axis 360 requires a username. Start at http://398.axis360.baker-taylor.com/ and login using “398” before the username of your choice. (For example, mine is 398kmcgrath). Compared to registering for most online accounts, it’s amazingly simple and easy to sign-up.
