Participation and Purpose

The Florida SHARES project is supported by participating higher education institutions in the state of Florida.  SHARES is listed in all caps as it is an acronym for SHared Academic Research Ebook System. Florida SHARES enables quick self-directed circulation of ebooks and audiobooks to students, faculty and staff through a shared AXIS 360 platform provided through Baker and Taylor. Participating institutions select and purchase ebooks and audio books, and share them online using the AXIS 360 platform. Title records can be searched in the participating institutions' library catalog as well as within the Axis 360 platform. This guide is designed to provide users with information and videos on how to access and use this growing collection of shared resources. Thank you for visiting Florida SHARES! We hope you find these resources useful!
