*See what libraries such as New York Public Library, San Jose Public
Library, Microsoft Corporate Library, the Navy General Library Program and over a 1,000 other libraries across the U.S. and abroad already know- download audio books and eBooks from Digital Library Reserve offer:

o  A great collection of materials- over 10,000 eBooks and 3,300 audio
books-- with hundreds more added each week.
o  Easy to use service for patrons and library personnel
o  Seamless integration with your existing services and website

*In addition to best sellers and popular fiction by authors such as Michael Crichton, Nora Roberts and Tom Clancy, the collection of eBooks and download audio books includes:

o  Business eBooks from McGraw-Hill and audio books from Wiley Audio
o  IT eBooks form Pearson Education
o  Old time radio classics from MediaBay
o  Travel guides from Frommer's
o  Pocket dictionaries from Oxford University Press
o  Language learning audio titles from Topics Entertainment and Penton

The Digital Library Reserve platform is not a database- it is so much more!
No static collections, or pre-grouped packages of titles. You pick and
choose the books you want and tailor the collection to best service your patrons.

*See how easy it is to use. eBooks can be read on PCs, PDAs and SmartPhones and audio books can be transferred to hundreds of MP3 devices and even burned to CD! The service was also designed with features for the visually impaired including hotkeys and compatibility with text to speech screen readers.

*See examples of the customization and seamless integration already in place.  No need for patrons to use a separate login or password or be launched to a third party service or website.

Attend and be entered into a drawing for a Creative MuVo TX 256 MB MP3 player!

Come see the digital media platform featured on NBC News and in the New York Times. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, August 25th.
