More on OneClickDigital

OneClickDigitalMany of you have already signed up for an account with OneClickDigital and have had varying success with downloading audiobooks. OneClickDigital is still in beta, and they are aware of the issues you're having. Fortunately, we expect a fix for many of these issues to be working by next week!

In the meantime, you can use our catalog to search for downloadable audiobooks. If you go to Advanced Search and type the word oneclick in the first field, you can then search by author, subject, title, or keyword in the other fields. You can also find a full list of our downloadable audiobooks under the Media & Large Print link in the catalog menu.

Thank you for your patience during this transition!

Two questions, please:

1. Why is the library using a company which only offers beta software?

2. Why is the library using a company that seems to offer mostly books that won't play on the most popular players, i.e. Apple's iPods and iPads?

The Santa Fe Public Library did not select a new vendor for downloadable audios, or purposely go with a company that "only offers beta software". The change resulted from a corporate acquisition and reorganization. While the OneClickDigital product was offered a bit early, we believed that it was better to offer an immature product than no product at all.

All OneClickDigital content is iPod compatible. They are just working out some bugs in their searching and downloading interface, and everything should be running smoothly in a week or two.
