    You may know that the Digital Media Lab (aka the shiny iMac by the Holds on the first floor) is good for converting VHS to DVDs. But did you know that you can also try out 4 of our digital services before you venture off on your own? True story.

    We've logged in with trial IDs so that you can experience of the services can be used. Please bring along your headphones to get the full experience. Don't worry if you forget, though, for $1.50 you can buy a pair from us.

     Visit the main desk to pick up the login information, keyboard, and mouse to try these services out. See below for details of what you can do.


        1.) Hoopla- Click this icon to check out Audiobooks, TV Shows, and even Movies.


        2.) Freegal- Click this icon to download mp3s. The iTunes icon next to it will allow you to play the song.


        3.) Zinio- Click this icon to check out digital magazines. Zinio can be hard to use because it requires 2 different logons. We've got everything set up for you here so you can see how it should work if everything goes smoothly.


        4.) Overdrive- Click this icon to check out eBooks. The Digital Editions icon next to it will allow you to read the book.


        5.) Downloads- This is where the mp3s and eBooks are downloaded. If your song or eBook doesn't automatically appear in iTunes or Digital Editions, going here and clicking on the file will open it in the appropriate application.

     Additionally, there are handouts at the DML that gives you an introduction on the 4 apps mentioned above. Use them to help answer any questions you may have. When all else fails, though, you can always as a librarian for help. That's what we're here for!
