The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, in partnership with Arizona libraries, is proud to present a statewide ebook platform, Reading Arizona. Reading Arizona offers a curated collection of always available ebooks on Arizona topics and themes and features three types of content: contemporary ebooks acquired from publishers, content from self-published authors, and digitized out-of-copyright books and manuscripts. The project builds on a 2012 centennial project from Pima County Public Libraries mapping the literary landscape. Reading Arizona unites readers through our shared interest in Arizona herself.
We invite you along the journey as we build Reading Arizona. This blog is a behind-the-scenes look at building a statewide ebook platform, a growing trend among libraries. We welcome feedback from readers, librarians, authors, publishers, and Arizonans. Please ask questions or offer comments through the Contact Us page. For information on our progress, please continue to check this blog or subscribe to our RSS feed, as well as our collection of Reports. To begin exploring Reading Arizona, check out our Getting Started guide.
Reading Arizona is brought to you by the Arizona State Library, with funding through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
