Cartolano, Robert T.; English, James; Kimpton, Michele

SimplyE, an end-user library reading app for ebook and audiobooks developed by the New York Public Library, continues to gain momentum across public and academic libraries. New efforts are underway to better understand the needs of academic ebook readers and advance open-source software to meet the needs of institutions and students. SimplyE and the technologies it uses have evolved and proliferated. User expectations have evolved. With more media types, digital rights management (DRM), and content hosting capabilities it is now closer than ever to becoming an ebook solution for academic libraries. Learn about recent accomplishments, current efforts, and future plans to improve SimplyE and expand its use in academic and public libraries.
