At EuroSCUG’s last monthly meeting, senior computer users enjoyed another visit from Donna Lawrence from Moruya Library. Donna was accompanied by Malcolm O’Brien, manager of the RBdigital Gateway to which the library subscribes.
Donna took members on a tour of the library site, pointing out the various options available, such as searching for a book by title, author, or genre. She also demonstrated how to reserve and renew books. Donna then moved on to the library’s digital resources, including e-books, audio books and databases such as Trove. Library members visiting the library can also access the Ancestory.com, a popular family history resource.
As well as e-book resource Borrow Box, the library now subscribes to RBdigital, and Donna introduced Malcolm O’Brien to demonstrate this app. Malcolm explained that 11 libraries in the southeast zone had pooled resources to give members access to hundreds of e-magazines and digital audio and e-books, including latest releases. He demonstrated how to download and set up the app on mobile phones and tablets.
After morning tea, Donna and Malcolm helped a small group download and operate the RBdigital app. while other groups covered buying, selling and managing stocks and shares, basic photography with a smart phone, and editing photos,
