NEW TECHNOLOGY IN THE LIBRARY
The library now has Kindles available at all campuses for loans to students, staff, and faculty. At the moment, the Kindles are being used to expand the availability of some of the highly used books in our Reserves area, and they will be available for in-library use only. However, it will be possible to transfer the e-books via USB to a personal laptop for a specified period of time. The subject areas covered by the Kindle so far include: History, Humanities, and Nursing.
Please come and check it out! The library staff will be able to assist patrons with learning how to use the Kindles.
2. FILMS ON DEMAND
Edison Library has acquired an excellent new database which makes it possible to stream over 6,000 educational videos from home, school, or wherever! Films On Demand also has special video collections from BBC, PBS, The History Channel, and many others! This is a free service to all Edison students, staff, and faculty.
To access: Patrons will need to have their library borrower ID and pin number ready to sign in with as they would with other databases. If you don’t already have these, please stop by the library, and we will get you set up.
Log into the databases on the library’s homepage, and search alphabetically for the FMG databases.
Browse individual videos in the library’s online catalog by keyword searching for “Electronic Video.”
Faculty Note: There will be two TLC classes held for Films On Demand on
September 12th at 12pm
