Come see a demo and ask questions about joining TLELP. 

After concluding a successful yearlong pilot project in June 2016, the new phase of TLELP has grown from 5 libraries with a 1-year agreement, to 13 libraries with a 3-year agreement, and plans for continued growth. 

With our shared ODILO eBook platform, libraries can bring in content directly from publishers, as well as ingest and share their own publications and/or local content through this innovative and easy-to-use platform: http://www.theologicalebooks.org

Traditional and Revolutionary: In similar fashion to print book purchasing, TLELP libraries purchase specific eBooks for their own collections usually allowing one simultaneous user for each copy purchased. Currently, TLELP libraries have acquired over 700 unique titles, with many available as multiple copies for patrons to borrow. 

Moreover, our publishers have agreed to allow TLELP libraries to share their collections with the other libraries. Some publishers have even agreed to offer unlimited, concurrent use to the purchasing library.
