Viewpoint from the Chair - January 2016

It’s showtime!

The curtain has risen on our newest and most ambitious project, the Amigos eShelf℠ Service e-book distribution platform, and I am really encouraged by its initial reception and the feedback we have received. The project, two years in development and testing, recently caught the eye of the Library Journal, which ran a much-appreciated article on the eShelf℠ Service's launch in its December issue. If you haven't seen this informative article, it offers a nice overview of the service, and I encourage you to read it at your earliest opportunity.
