Zinio Partners with Recorded Books for Digital Mags in Libraries

Makes digital magazines available in libraries nationwide and abroad.

By Lindsay Rubin

Zinio announced today its partnership with Recorded Books, making thousands of digital magazines accessible in public libraries throughout the US, Canada, Australia and UK.

Zinio‚Äôs partnership with Recorded Books will grant library visitors access to full digital issues of magazines through ‚ÄúZinio for Libraries‚ÄĚ with the use of their library card. Libraries will offer selected titles through a digital catalogue.

‚ÄúPeople love going to their public library to read a large selection of magazines, but printed copies can easily get damaged, lost or destroyed,‚ÄĚ said Rich Freese, president and CEO, Recorded Books.

Library patrons can browse Zinio’s page-for-page platform of popular titles like Consumer Reports, Car & Driver, Good Housekeeping, The Economist, ESPN Magazine and Esquire.

Functional on both Mac and PC operating systems, Zinio for Libraries will feature tools that include key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video.

Recorded Books will launch the program at the American Libraries Association conference in New Orleans, which is being held June 24 through June 27.
