|On October 1, an additional tab will be added to all LINCPAC’s, pointing to the Media Mall web site (http://www.mymediamall.net). The tab will be called Media Mall. When patrons link to this site, they will be able to check out and download e-books and audiobooks, using their LINC barcode and pin number.|
|2005 - 126||MEDIA MALL WEB PUBLIC RELATIONS MATERIALS|
|We’ve posted two public relations products that LINC libraries can use to promote Media Mall--an editable poster and an editable bookmark. These products are available at http://www.ltls.org/MediaMall.html, under the section called Media Mall Public Relations. These products can be edited with your library name and printed out for your patrons. Be sure to include the url for Media Mall (http://www.mymediamall.net) when you print these. Also at this site is a sample press release and the Media Mall logo.|
