LYRASIS Invites You Take a Survey on Academic Ebook Usage

Library Simplified

LYRASIS recently received a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to investigate development of the Library Simplfied ebook platform and SimplyE e-reading application ( for use in academic libraries. SimplyE is an open source mobile e-reading application originally designed to simplify access to ebooks for public libraries and their patrons. It aggregates ebooks and audiobooks and makes them accessible in a single app. 

Minitex was awarded a grant by IMLS to build SimplyE for Consortia, which adds consortia features into this app so that library cardholders can access ebooks from multiple libraries.

To help us understand needs and interests across the academic community, you’re invited to take this short survey at The survey takes about 15 minutes and your responses are greatly appreciated.
