Burnsville, MN (I-Newswire) October 1, 2012 - Mackin Educational Resources is proud to introduce the mackinVIA Reader app, now available through the Apple iTunes Store for iPad and for Android tablets. The free application expands the capabilities of the mackinVIA content management system to allow for offline reading.

More than simply an eResources portal, mackinVIA is now a complete package with its eReader application. Known as the mackinVIA Reader, the app allows mackinVIA users to check out and download eBooks for offline reading. Additionally, the app includes features such keyword search, bookmarking, and annotations. With the introduction of the mackinVIA Reader, reading offline is as simple as downloading the app from iTunes and downloading an eBook hosted by Mackin Educational Resources through mackinVIA.

"We built mackinVIA to function as an eResource management system that is simple and convenient to use but robust and stable to handle the demands school librarians have," says Randal Heise, Mackin Educational Resources president. "Now, with the introduction of the mackinVIA Reader, students, teachers, and librarians no longer need an internet connection to access their eResources. With a simple download process, they can carry eBooks with them into the classroom as well as into the real world."

MackinVIA provides students and staff with simple and convenient access to the entire collection of eBooks and databases a school has acquired. Through just one login, mackinVIA users can explore fiction and nonfiction digital eResources from a variety of publishers, with thousands of titles being added each day.
