What is enki Library?

enki LibraryThe enki Library is a shared open source eBook Network developed by Califa and Contra Costa County Library that allows California libraries to:

  • own and store eBooks for access by library patrons;
  • share access to more content than any individual library can purchase on its own;
  • add features and functionality lacking in current third-party vendor models; and
  • share access to unique local digitized content with other libraries within the Network.

Funding for enki Library is through a Bay Area Library Information Systems (BALIS) Innovation Grant, Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) monies from  California State Library, and Califa.
