We are happy to announce that Lyrasis is now member of the Readium Foundation.

Lyrasis has just officially launched the Palace Project mobile application. The Palace Project is a nonprofit library-centered digital content platform covering the USA, with content licensed through Palace’s own marketplace as well as through most of the major library e-book vendors, including OverDrive, Baker and Taylor, Bibliotheca, and Bibliolabs.

The Palace App is available on iOS and Android, and it is based on the latest version of the open-source Readium Mobile toolkit. The Palace App will therefore benefit from the constant evolution of the best open-source reading toolkit, a toolkit for which core developers are currently De Marque in Canada and EDRLab in Europe: a great example of international cooperation.
