As some of you may already know, Minitex has selected MackinVIA as a new online platform for Ebooks Minnesota. The transition from the BiblioBoard to the MackinVIA platform will involve many moving parts and pieces. We want to make sure that libraries and schools are aware of what to expect while this transition takes place.
Minitex has selected MackinVIA as the new online platform for Ebooks Minnesota. This choice comes in the wake of many months of careful planning and investigation. We are grateful to the many community members who provided their input to this process, and for the partnership and forward thinking of Bibliolabs, Ebooks Minnesota’s foundational platform vendor. We will continue to share information as we work towards full implementation of the new platform by July 1.

Minitex is happy to announce that Ebooks Minnesota just gained 350+ titles around equity, diversity, and inclusion. Last fall, students in St. Catherine University's Master of Library and Information Science Program, Library Materials for Children class, performed a diversity audit of Ebooks Minnesota. As a result of this audit, the Ebooks Minnesota Collection Task Force recently selected diverse titles for inclusion into the collection from publishers including ABDO, Capstone, Rosarium, Dreamspinner, and Flux.
