MyiLibrary®, Ingram’s aggregated e-book platform, allows publishers to distribute their content to academic, public, medical, professional and association libraries all over the world. Currently used by more than 700 publishers, MyiLibrary is the platform of choice for innovative publishers who are interested in beginning or expanding their reach into the library market.
How does it work? Publishers send content and metadata to MyiLibrary where libraries are able to purchase titles using a variety business models:
Purchase Model | Librarians purchase titles at single or multi-user license levels.
Patron Select Acquisition Model | Libraries set a budget amount for purchasing e-books. The patrons then have access to those titles and once an e-book is viewed a second time, the library acquires the e-book.
Short Term Loan Model | Libraries and their patrons gain short-term access to e-books that are not currently available in their collection.
- Reach more than 2,000 libraries around the world
- Increased title discoverability of backlist or “sleeper” titles
- Participation is free to qualified publishers
- Physical and e-book distribution through a single source
Through MyiLibrary, libraries have access to nearly 300,000 e-book titles from leading publishers round the world and with nearly 5,000 titles added every month; it is the fastest-growing and most comprehensive online e-content platform in the market today.
