Last week at the ALA conference I held an interview with Mitch Davis, the Founder and Chief Business Officer of Bibliolabs. We discussed BiblioBoard and BiblioBoard Creator in detail. Mitch provided me with a brief description of the products below and is offering a 30 day free trial to any No Shelf Required readers (information below).

More on BibioLabs:
BiblioLabs offers two connected platforms to libraries: BiblioBoard Creator and BiblioBoard Library. BiblioBoard Creator is a tool that enables libraries and their patrons to produce sophisticated, multimedia digital exhibits without any software developers. BiblioBoard Library is where these anthologies are published and promoted. Patrons search or browse BiblioBoard to find anthologies rich with unique digital artifacts hand selected by expert curators; then read, view, listen, take notes, bookmark, download, export citations, or go mobile with ease. BiblioBoard provides the ability to affordably add patron access to over 10,000 full text e-books and thousands of pages of primary source material on mobile devices. The same interface can also feature local collections and patron created content.
BiblioLabs has aligned their ecosystem with the Readers First movement which aims to improve e-book access and services for library users. BiblioBoard is accessible via the web, iPad®, Kindle Fire HD®, Nexus 7®, Galaxy Tab®.
