The library ebook market just got little more interesting today. ebrary, a digital library provider, has just released its first app.
Library patrons can use the app to search for and download ebooks, copy and export citations, and import other docs. This app supports eBooks distributed by ebrary as well as PDFs and content from other sources including materials uploaded and integrated by librarians.
For the longest time, content from ebrary was only available on a computer. But over the past 6 months, ebrary has been polling librarians, students, and patrons in order to find out what services they needed most. Offline access was at the top of most request lists. This led ebrary to offer eReader support as well as this new app.
