Burlingame, Lyndon, Osage City and Overbrook libraries have received a grant from The Northeast Kansas Library System (NEKLS) for an Android Tablet that can be used to help demonstrate the use of e-resources available to their patrons. Specifically, these tablets will enable libraries to promote the hoopla (streaming movies, music and e-books/comics) and Flipster (e-magazines) services that NEKLS offers to member public libraries.
NEKLS has selected 32 public libraries in the Northeast Kansas region to receive tablets through the NEKLS Tablet Grant Program. As part of the grant program, NEKLS will train library staff to use the tablets to engage patrons in the use of e-services. NEKLS will evaluate the effectiveness of this grant program through statistics and outcomes provided by participating libraries over a 6-month period.
NEKLS is a 14 county regional system that covers the Northeast portion of Kansas. It provides consulting and other professional services to member libraries of all types (academic, school, special and public) and includes access to a consortial catalog, NExpress Library (http://catalog.nexpresslibrary.org), to 45 member public libraries. Along with these services, NEKLS offers consortial access to e-content through hoopla and Flipster for its NExpress member libraries. These services allow patrons of member libraries to access thousands of movies, albums, e-books, e-audiobooks, comics and magazines at no charge.
