Digital Collections

New digital collections have arrived at Hastings Memorial Library!

Exciting news!  We have added to our digital collection!  The library has joined The Central Nebraska Digital Co-op, a group composed of libraries from across the state who are working together as a group to purchase products and services. As a group, the Co-op subscribes to Zinio Magazines and OneClickDigital downloadable audio books.

Today we are going to take a look at Zinio.  Through our website, patrons can have unlimited multi-user access to complete digital magazines, which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library.  Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video. ESPN, Food Network, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and Shape are just a few of the popular titles available.

All you need to access Zinio is a current Hastings Memorial Library card!  You will need your library card number to create an account and then choose a personalized user name and password for future access.  Magazines can download directly to your desktop or laptop.  If you are using a tablet or smartphone, you can download the Zinio for Libraries app for free from your device’s app store.

Ready to get started?  Visit https://www.rbdigital.com/centralnebraskane/zinio to browse the selection or to create your account and get started.   We have also placed a button on the side menu of our webpage to make it easy for you to access in the future.

As always, library staff is available during regular library hours to help you with any questions you may have. Check back soon for an update and tutorial on OneClickDigital downloadable audio books!
