The Amigos eShelf℠ Service: a look under the hood

-by Christine Peterson, Amigos eShelfSM Service Manager
The Amigos eShelf℠ Service, the unique new e-book platform created by librarians for librarians, has been up and running since November 2015. Since then, we have been doing our best to get the word out about it to our member libraries through conferences, social media, direct email, and webinars. While all of this has been going on, however, we have not been idle on the development side.

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.
