Cloud Library: What is Cloud Library

Transition Announcement

On July 1, UIS library will be transitioning our Cloudlibrary collection to the Libby app.  To prepare for this switch, we recommend that you make a list of any books you have saved in Cloudlibrary.  More info about this change coming soon.

What Is Cloud Library

The Basics

The Cloud Library application is an innovative way to browse, borrow, and read popular fiction and non-fiction eBooks and eAudiobooks from Brookens Library. You will need a valid I-Card to use the application.

Cloud Library is available on most major devices.

Borrowing Policies 

  •  Each eBook can only be checked out to 1 person at a time.
