3M Cloud Library Partners With NOOK for Library Lending

3M Library Systems made Barnes & Noble’s NOOK GlowLight part of its lending options for 3M Cloud Library. U.S. libraries can purchase GlowLight e-readers directly from Barnes & Noble to loan to their patrons and offer access to 3M Cloud Library titles on the devices.

To use this compatibility, patrons check out 3M Cloud Library ebooks on library computers and then visit the lending desk so library staff can load the borrowed titles onto a GlowLight, which is preloaded with secure software by Barnes & Noble community relations managers. The software locks down the devices so they can only be used by the library’s account, won’t require a patron’s personal information, and become inoperable once titles are due.

“What’s unique about our program is that patrons can choose the titles they want to read, rather than borrowing a pre-loaded device with a title they may not be interested in,” says Tom Mercer, 3M Cloud Library’s marketing manager. “Our program gives patrons choice and allows libraries to extend digital reading to more people in their community.”
