Registering for Axis 360
The Magic Wall
The first items that you will see are the ebooks that were just added. Directly above them, you will see options to view new releases, popular items, or “hidden gems,” which are ebooks that are considered to be of high quality, though they are not as frequently checked out.
Toward the top left of the Magic Wall are links to other selections, such as the App Zone.
If you have forgotten your Axis 360 Mobile App PIN, please click here.
Below “Logout” is a small green picture of a magnifying glass. This is your search option. When you click on it, the “Search Library” box will appear.
Next to the magnifying glass are three more images: a green key for keyword searches, a capitol T for title searches, and a feather pen for author searches. Click on the icon of whichever style you want to use to search for your item, and then type in your search terms. Now hit “Enter” on your keyboard.
What you do at this point will vary depending on which device you have. If you are using a Mac computer, you can check out content via your library's Axis 360 website and then read it on your mobile device using the Axis 360 mobile app.
If you need Adobe Digital Additions, you may download that here:
