(1 August 2013) Lecturers, learners and researchers across the UK now have access to over 14,000 additional full text eBooks and thousands of pages of primary source material on their tablets and mobile devices thanks to a new partnership agreement between Jisc Collections and BiblioLabs.
The partnership, which is rooted in pushing forward the Digital Humanities, will also empower subscribing institutions to make digital content from their internal repositories available to scholars and enthusiasts around the world.
The offer, called BiblioBoard, is available for subscription for education and research organisations. It offers two platforms to university libraries:
BiblioBoard Library is an award-winning content ecosystem that connects library patrons with digital archives from around the world. It includes over 14,000 eBooks and consists of millions of pages of high-quality primary source content covering literature, philosophy, history, geography, science and more. In addition to the web version, BiblioBoard Library is available as a native application on a variety of popular tablets (iPad, Kindle Fire HD, Nook, Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy). Through a highly visual and intuitive interface it provides library patrons with curated multimedia collections that incorporate books, articles, images, audio and video.
BiblioBoard Creator is an easy-to-use authoring tool that enables libraries to make available valuable digital assets in their internal repositories to others either for free or for sale via BiblioBoard Library.
