Open up the world of eBooks with ePlatform
Access thousands of eBooks to help inspire and educate your school or public library patrons through this secure system. ePlatform is a full-service eBook lending library, which hosts your personalised library eBook collection and facilitates lending for patrons to borrow.
ePlatform is a truly unique system, offering your patrons a wide range of titles while ensuring your library costs are kept to a minimum. The system is easy to set up and you have complete control over your collection, with full support from our friendly local team.
Since being launched in 2011, ePlatform is used by around 1000 schools and public libraries across more than 10 countries.
Watch our video to see how it works:
- The most local content by far
With 30,000 eBooks from 500 New Zealand and Australian publishers, ePlatform offers unbeatable access to content on local interests from local authors. This is the largest Australasian content of any eBook publisher.
- Overall you’ll have access to nearly 200,000 eBook titles over ePlatform, an inventory that is growing every week.
- The most affordable pricing
Most other eBook systems have exorbitant setup costs. Not ePlatform. There’s no annual fee or ongoing commitment, only a low setup charge and minimal per title fee to cover hosting/DRM.
- Our collection-based pricing rather than subscription means your library can spend its budget on the things that will actually benefit your patrons – more eBooks!
- As well as cheap eBook pricing, libraries offering both eBooks and hard copy books will benefit from additional discounts with our bundled services. Pricing options personalized to your library’s requirements will mean you can afford to source all your eBook and hard copy titles from us – which saves you time and money.
- Customisable settings for schools and users
Whether a library administrator or patron, you’ll be able to customise ePlatform to suit your school or personal preferences. You’ll have full admin control over loan periods, reserves, usage reports and more. Your patrons will be able to personalize their eBook display settings so that they can read how best suits them.
ePlatform is so easy to use, and puts the control in your hands.

A few testimonials...
'Wheelers provide many useful features for our digital library, including a wide range of titles and subjects. The option to download or read online is especially valued by our patrons, as well as the ability to reserve titles. Wheelers have responded quickly to feedback and purchase suggestions, and have a diverse range of content.'
Nathan Turner - e-Resources Librarian, Parramatta City Library, Australia
'I’ve found that Wheelers is excellent to deal with. Their eBook platform was very easy to set up, their books (both print and digital) are Australasian-oriented and up-to-date, and the purchasing system is simple and straightforward. Efficient and courteous help is only a quick phone call away.'
Jennifer King - Head of Information Services, Brisbane Boys’ College, Australia
'It can be very confusing when you start to think about e-books and all that it entails for your library. Wheeler's e-book platform makes it easy. Their staff answer all your questions. Their help desk is easy to access and available to help you with any problems you might have. I am very impressed with the range of books you can get now and new publishers are being added all the time.
Most importantly the e-readers I have in my school are out all the time, the students have taken to them like ducks to water. They are a great tool to promote reading.'
Karen Clarke - Library Manager, St. Patrick's College, Wellington, New Zealand
'I am extremely impressed with Wheelers’ efficiency. I set up the registration page and user interface easily, which shows how friendly it is.'

"I’m just writing to let you know that I love your e-platform service! I’ve found the whole process of implementing the platform at Freyberg High School very smooth and seamless. Thanks for the great service so far too: you’ve been quick to offer support when needed. I know your range of eBooks is ever growing and even in these early stages of your service, I’m quite amazed at the range already on offer.
Keep up the good work and congratulations for creating the first ePlatform of its kind in New Zealand, for New Zealanders!"
Debbie Price-Ewen - High School Manager, Freyberg Library, and founder and manager of NZeRT
"Hamilton City Libraries have had the pleasure of offering a customised ePlatform, including our own banner and colour scheme, to customers since February 27, 2012. Wheelers have provided excellent technical support, with fast response times. We enjoy having the freedom to log into the admin side and customise such things as loan limit and length. Our customers appreciate the thorough help guides available, the convenience, and not having to worry about overdue fees"
