Did You Know…New for E-books!
Beginning August 4, 2014 you will find these cool new features available on the library e-book website mydigitalcitylibrary.org when you login to your account.
Suspend a Hold
This feature will allow you to temporarily suspend a hold in the waiting list. Your position will continue to advance in the queue while your hold is suspended, but the hold will not be filled. After the suspension ends, the title will continue to advance until the hold becomes available. If you advance to the first position in the waiting list while the hold is suspended, the system will skip ahead to fill the next available hold.
At the time you place a hold, the option to ‘auto-checkout’ the title when it becomes available can be set. If you who select this option, you will receive a notification when the title is available confirming that it has been checked out and can be found on your account bookshelf. If you decide not select this option, you will receive the hold notification and must login to your account to check out the e-book before the hold date expires.
“Recommended for you” Collection
After you sign in, a collection of recommended titles will appear on the homepage. Recommended titles will be available for checkout and suggested based on titles you currently have checked out or on hold. If you do not have any checkouts or holds, this collection will not appear.
Two options will be added to the Account Settings page that will allow you to customize your browsing and discovery experience based on content maturity level:
1. The ability to exclude certain content based on the maturity level (Juvenile, YA, General, Adult). This will allow adults to exclude titles for younger readers and young readers to exclude adult-only titles from their experience.
2. The option to “mask” all adult cover images with a basic cover image. This option will be set to “No” by default.
This is a sample of a basic cover image.
I hope you enjoy all of these great new features! Having trouble getting e-books? Call us at 561-868-7701 for information on how we can help.
