Booth Library patrons now have access to BiblioBoard, featuring Popup Picks, a high profile selection of e-books that changes quarterly, plus additional collections of e-books, audio books, videos and audio files.
There is no limit on simultaneous use; items in these collections can be read by one or 100 patrons at the same time. This means no hold queues and no waiting for titles. The Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) has made these collections available to any Illinois resident.

- the library website, http://library.eiu.edu/eresources/ebooks/index.php?subcode=ALL
- BiblioBoard app for iOS (from the iTunes App Store)
