Instant Classics (SimplyE Collection)

NYPL maintains a collection of about 5000 high-quality public domain titles. Access to these titles is free to your patrons and unlimited. If you want these books integrated into your collection, just mention this when you fill out the form and One Click will make sure they're included.
You can see the available titles by installing the SimplyE mobile app and choosing "The SimplyE Collection" as your library. This collection includes the 5000 Instant Classics titles, made available to anyone without a library card. The question here is whether you want these titles integrated into your collection so that your patrons can borrow them without having to switch over to "The SimplyE Collection".

Odillo

To ingest a library's Odilo collection data into the Library Simplified Circulation Manager, the library must obtain access to Odilo's catalog API. Staff from the library must contact Odilo and request access credentials (an API access account):

  • API Base URL: A web URL of the form https://[library_id].odilo.us/api/v2
  • Client Key: A secure encryption key supplied by Odilo
  • Client Secret: A passphrase for the encryption key supplied by Odilo

Once you have the proper client account information from Odilo, you can configure the collection in the Circulation Manager.

Overdrive

You'll need to apply for API access on behalf of your library. You can do this when you apply for an Overdrive developer account. (https://developer.overdrive.com/application)
If you already have an Overdrive developer account, then go to the Overdrive Member Center ({+}https://developer.overdrive.com/member-center+), log in, and apply for API access through there.
When you apply, you'll be asked which API you want access to. Ask for access to all three. You will probably only need two of the three, but the approval process is slow, it doesn't cost anything extra to get all three, and you won't have to go back and re-apply if your situation changes.
Under "Planned API usage", mention the name of your library and that you are integrating your Overdrive collection into the SimplyE system.
It can take a week or more to get approved for API access, so don't put this off!

Plympton Books

To start connecting your library's Plymtpon account to your Library Simplified circulation manager, you will need to contact Plymton and request a

  1. URL

  2. access key

  3. secret key

RB Digital

To connect your library's RB Digital account to your Library Simplified circulation manager, you must have two key data elements:

  1. RBdigital's numeric ID for the library

  2. An API access token
