There are more than 3,000 ebook and audiobook titles available in the shared Monroe 2 BOCES digital library on Axis 360. Students and staff can log in to their school’s individual library with their school username and password, either on a computer or a mobile device.

Once there, they can browse or search for content, start a wish list, borrow a title or two, or put a hold on that popular book they’ve been dying to read.

Many of the nonfiction titles in the library allow for unlimited, simultaneous use, so an entire class on laptops, Chromebooks or tablets can be reading the same book at the same time. This can eliminate the problem of resource sharing when multiple classes need to do the same unit at the same time.

To help students more easily find the content they want in Axis 360, Axis 360 Platforms
