eGO Information Session
eGO CT is a project from the Connecticut State Library that includes acquiring digital content, such as eBooks and eAudio, and making it available to users statewide, primarily through the SimplyE app. At this information session, we'll review the background of the project, download and explore the SimplyE app, demonstrate the Circulation Manager, and talk about when and how you can roll out the SimplyE app to your patrons.
SimplyE will allow you and your patrons to simultaneously search the statewide eBook and eAudio collections in RBdigital, Baker and Taylor, and the Digital Public Library as well as your local library eBook and eAudio collections that you have with any of the vendors above plus Overdrive.
To register for a DLD workshop or webinar, you must be a current staff member, Friend, or Board Member/Trustee of a library in CT. If you are an unemployed librarian in CT, please contact Gail Hurley (firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-704-2222) to register.
If you cannot attend a workshop you have registered for, please remember to cancel at least 3 days in advance so we can give your spot to someone else. You can cancel via the link in your confirmation email, or by contacting Gail Hurley email@example.com | (860) 704-2222.
Those who miss (without cancelling) 3 events within a 6-month period will be placed on the waiting list when registering for future events. Be sure to sign in when you arrive for any workshop.
