BiblioTech: First All-Digital Public #Library in U.S. Opens This Saturday in Bexar County, Texas #libraries


Bibilotech, the first all-digital public library in the U.S. opens one week from today (September 14, 2014) in Bexar County (San Antonio), Texas. 


The library has been offering library card registration for a few weeks via their web site.

According to the web site, BiblioTech will offer materials from:

eBooks from 3M Cloud Library (10,000 titles at launch)Audiobooks from One-Click DigitalLanguage instruction from Mango

The library also offers:

500 e-readers (100 pre-loaded enhanced e-readers for children) 50 computer stations, 25 laptops and 25 tablets to use on-site

BiblioTech provides access to a large selection of reference and article databases via TexShare from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

Sadly, these resources are poorly marked on the library’s web site. They deserve enumeration and explanation not to mention making them easier to find in the first place.

We also hope BiblioTech does better discovering and organizing high-quality open web resources that are often free to access and use. At the moment, only four resources are listed and two of them are listed incorrectly."
