E-Zone's New Look!
Have you noticed that the Ocean State Libraries E-Zone has a brand new look? It has been redesigned and isn't just pretty, it's also easier than ever to find titles to download!
The new dyanamic visual features of the site also have some functional benefits. The headings are more defined and easier to read, which makes browsing more efficient. Now, at a glance, it's easier to see the new arrivals, titles that recently became available and browse highlighted titles by category or genre.
The revamped Help section is easier to find with a tab listed right at the top AND a button in that little Getting Started box, which is a great thing to browse if you've never used the Ezone before.
Use the My Help Section to go directly to resources for your e-reading or audiobook listening device. If you are thinking about getting a new one, check out the Device Resource Center to see features of all of them and how to use them to download your library titles.
Do you have questions about how checking out digital downloads works? How long you are able to keep the title and what happens when the time is up? -- See the Library Lending Policies.
Be sure to visit the My Digital Account tab to become acquainted with using your wish list for saving items you may want to check out later, placing items on hold and going back to get them once they become available, and all the steps of check out.
If you haven't done it before, it might seem complicated, but it does not take long to get the hang of it! Once you take a look around, you might notice that it's very similar to online shopping, but the Ezone of course, is a fantastic way to borrow digital titles you would otherwise have to pay for to read on your Nook, Kindle or other e-Reading app or device.
