SimplyE pages

SimplyE, an easy to use open source e-book app, was developed by libraries for libraries. Developed Using ReadersFirst principles, SimplyE makes borrowing library e-books easy and quick by hiding the Digital Rights Management (DRM) frustrations from the patron. With an intuitive interface, it aggregates results from major e-book services into a single list and allows patrons to read an e-book with 3 three clicks.

Amigos Library Services is providing the technical infrastructure necessary to support this service, so public libraries to can deploy it to their patrons. Eventually Amigos will offer implementation for any public library interested in using SimplyE.

Interested or have questions? Please contact SimplyE@amigos.org.
