Axis 360 Gains Ebook-Filtering Tool

Baker & Taylor added new functionality to its Axis 360 digital media platform. Librarians can now filter out content from shared collections in Axis 360 that they do not want to be viewable in their catalogs. Filters can be specified to restrict content by BISAC subject code, audience level, or author.

After receiving feedback from libraries in the eRead Illinois ebook program, Baker & Taylor worked with the Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) consortium to develop a “site scoping tool” for Axis 360. It is designed to give libraries more control over their digital collections, including the ability for school librarians to remove access to adult-themed titles in their institutions while the mature ebooks remain available at public libraries in the same consortia.

“This addition to Axis 360 provides libraries with the flexibility to filter or ‘scope’ material and make sure it is appropriate for their users,” says George Coe, Baker & Taylor’s CEO and president. “Librarians know what is best for the communities they serve, and this new tool helps them tailor material from shared collections to serve their audience best.”
