Wheelers Books

ePlatform has changed eBook lending for good 

Wheelers ePlatform is a secure library-lending platform that is challenging the world of eBook lending. Tailor-made for schools and libraries, it facilitates and hosts the lending of eBook titles to students and library patrons

WHY SCHOOLS & PUBLIC LIBRARIES ARE TAKING NOTICE

  • Unmatched value and books you actually own.
    Wheelers create a personalised, library/school branded ePlatform for a low one off set up fee. There's no ongoing commitment to buy and only a minimal per title fee to cover hosting/DRM. But most appealingly (and unlike other solutions) every eBook you purchase, you own. Wheelers is not a subscription service!
  • An engaging interface packed with librarian-friendly features.
    ePlatform has a clean, intuitive interface that's so easy to use. School Librarians will love the fact that we work directly with SCIS so that all our eBooks have SCIS records. Free brief MARC records are provided to integrate the eBook titles into your Library OPAC (and we work with every Library Management System!). You'll also enjoy admin control over loans and reserves; flexible loan parameters, and the ability to restrict borrowing by age. Plus, you can download, personalise, and print free resources like posters and bookmarks to promote your ePlatform.
  • Local focus, local service - global reach.
    We have a huge array of Australian and New Zealand titles that cater to local interests and complement the hundreds of international publishers we profile. Our team is also local, so you'll always have easy access to help and information in you timezone.

A few testimonials...

'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.


"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 (Freyberg Library High School Manager 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"

Amanda Magee - Digital Manager Hamilton Library
