Unbound Collections

In addition to membership in the shared Axis 360 collection, any library participating in eRead Illinois may purchase its own optional Axis 360 Unbound collection from Baker & Taylor. An unbound collection is a local collection for a library's users. Titles are only available to users of that particular library. Items purchased for an unbound collection are integrated into the library's Axis 360 site so that all content is presented in one place for users. For more information, visit this eRead Illinois Axis 360 support page.
