The Palace Project Introduces a New App and a New Platform

The Palace Project, a division of LYRASIS, officially launched with its new platform and new app. According to the press release, “Informed by librarians and supported by a multi-year, multi-million dollar investment from the Knight Foundation, The Palace Project is an easy-to-use platform for the management and delivery of ebooks, audiobooks and other econtent and puts libraries at the center of their communities’ digital experience.” Its open source system allows librarians to manage their collections while protecting their patrons’ privacy and fostering a direct relationship with their community.

The Palace App, for iOS and Android devices, has content from all major econtent vendors, including OverDrive, Baker and Taylor, Bibliotheca, and Bibliolabs. The Palace Marketplace offers titles (with flexible licensing terms) from the Big Five publishers, Amazon Publishing, and hundreds of independent publishers. The Palace Project is already serving 100-plus libraries and is currently onboarding more in various states across the U.S.

For more information, read the press release.
