These two services allow you to download audiobooks, ebooks, and some video and music, which you can play on your computer or a compatible portable device. For audiobooks and ebooks, you can choose from titles in the categories of Classic Literature, General Fiction, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Biography & Autobiography, Business & Careers, History, and many more; there are even titles for kids. To get started or to learn more, just visit the Ohio eBook Project web site. The web site has a Quick Start Guide (click on "Click here to get started" in the upper left corner) as well as help on many topics (click on "Digital Book Help" at the top of the page).
The Ohio eBook Project and the SEO Library Consortium don't have a combined collection; you have to search the two web sites separately. The Ohio eBook Project has more audiobooks and more EPUB ebooks, but SEO has a large number of PDF ebooks.
Ohio eBook Project and SEO's downloadable project are coordinated by the State Library of Ohio. All member libraries purchase titles for the collection, and any of these titles can be used by any cardholder at any member library. This allows Cuyahoga Falls Library to provide access to a much richer collection than if we were acting alone, and allows the library to make more efficient use of its money. The two projects have a reciprocal borrowing agreement, so members of the Ohio eBook Project (like the Falls Library) can use the titles in the SEO Library Consortium and vice versa.
