Yen Wong, Learning Programs Officer at the State Library, explains a new Electronic Book Library service for all registered SLV users.
The State Library of Victoria has recently launched the Electronic Book Library (EBL) pilot to the public. The pilot will give the Library an opportunity to assess which books our users want to read.
This means that you will be able to download an ebook to read on your computer or ebook readers. Any downloads will be for paid by the library, thereby adding them to the Library’s collection.
The EBL collection is available to all Victorian registered SLV card holders. Registration with the State Library of Victoria is free and can be completed online.
Once a book of interest is found, users can browse the book for 5 minutes for free. After that time, the option to download is provided.
