eBrary Upgrading to Ebook Central
Migration from eBrary (one of our 2 main e-book suppliers) to ProQuest Ebook Central will take place the afternoon of Wednesday January 11, 2017 (midday pacific time) NO DOWNTIME IS EXPECTED. The new interface is very similar to the old with all the features of eBrary: custom bookshelves, tagging, highlighting, citations, sharing, etc. Registered users should find their previously saved titles and links all working and redirected.
In addition, ProQuest has set up a LibGuide: Ebook Central with lots of details:

For the second year, instead of exchanging gifts, Tech Services staff opted to buy toys for the “Toys for Tots” program. We were one of several drop-off site on campus and it was a huge success. We gathered 42 toys for the Marines’ annual toy drive. They came to pick them up on Dec. 9th.
They wanted to know if we wanted to be a collection site again next year and we told them YES! They remembered us from last year!
Many thanks to everyone who helped make the holidays brighter for children in our community!
The Library hosted a collection site for the Staff Council’s donation drive to gather winter hats, gloves and scarves for some Vigo County elementary schools (see earlier blog post). The drive ended Dec. 1 and the library collected a wagon load of winter things for children in our community.
The Council wanted to say “Thank You” to all who donated to this drive at our location and gave the library a commemorative holiday ornament for display.
The ornament is hanging on the tree in the Library Administrative Office.
