Thank you for the feedback. Once the PressReader app is authorized it gives you full access for 1 day and 23 hours. To get another window of access you will have to open your web browser, go to tpl.ca/pressreader and sign in with your library card number and PIN. Check that you are still logged in with your PressReader personal account. Now open the PressReader app. You should now have another window (1 day and 23 hours)of access. There is no monthly limit to the number of sessions available to you. You just have to sign in again. Here is a link to a getting started guide: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/

Thanks for the feedback. Were you able to take a look at the updated guide? http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/ I hope you can access the app to read newspapers.

Thank you for your patience. Can you please ensure you are signed in to PressReader with your email address and password after you have entered your library card and PIN. Your name should appear at the top of the screen rather than the words "Sign In." Look for the green tea cup (at the top or bottom of the app) which indicates that you are signed in. Our Getting started guide has been updated with some new screenshots that will hopefully clarify the set up of the app. http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/ Please let me know if this works. Customers can also submit a request directly to PressReader at: https://care.pressreader.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

Thank you for the feedback. Sorry you are having problems with the Android app. Perhaps you can let us know what type of device you are using and the version. We can investigate further if necessary. Here is a quick link to a Getting started guide: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/ For your interest if you use the PressReader app for downloading and offline reading you need to create an account with your email address, password and name. You can't use the Library Card option.

Here is a quick link to a Getting Started with PressReader guide: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/pressreader-help/ You can go through the library website tpl.ca/pressreader, click on Access Online and enter your library card number and PIN to read articles on your computer or through your device's browser. If you use the PressReader app for downloading and offline reading you need to create an account with your email address, password and name. You can't use the Library Card option. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you very much for the feedback. I have checked with the vendor and unfortunately there is no 'Exit' function in the app. It is recommended that you close out of the app in the standard way for your device.

Thank you for the feedback. Access to the lynda mobile app is included in the personal subscription but not in the one for public libraries.

Thank you for your comment. The exercise files are available to TPL customers. You could merge your profiles but then you would not be able to login with your existing username and password. You would have to use your library card number and PIN. You can email the customer service team at cs@lynda.com to assist with this process. Please note that the lynda subscription for public libraries is a bit different: Customers can't create their own playlists or use the lynda app. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your comment. The vendor reports that they are experiencing temporary technical issues. They are working to resolve the problem. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.

Thank you very much for your comment. Changes to Zinio eMagazines were introduced in 2015. A second account at Zinio.com is no longer required but customers may still want to access our Zinio eMagazine titles this way if they also have paid subscriptions. It still works this way. Here is a link to a current Getting Started with Zinio eMagazines page on the library website: http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/books-video-music/downloads-ebooks/zinio-help.jsp Hopefully you can set up an account and start reading. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for the comment. Do you know if your library card has expired? If this is the case, please visit a library branch to renew your card. You should be able to create a personal account to access Lynda.com through the library once your card has been renewed.

Thanks for the comment. Your library card may have expired. Library cards expire once a year. Please visit a library branch in person to renew your card. Once your card has been renewed you should be able to create a personal account to access Lynda.com through the library.

Thanks for your comment. Are you referring to the exercise files? Some courses feature exercise files. If you are watching a tutorial you can follow the activity with downloadable pre-populated files.

Thanks for the comment. We like to be aware of electronic resources that offer unique content and a model available to public libraries. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Pluralsight offers subscriptions for public libraries, but thanks for the suggestion.

Thank you for your comments. The Table of Contents icon is not available for all magazine titles and issues. If it is available (on the left in the viewer) you can click it, select a section and then an article. You need to click the Table of Contents icon again to collapse it and start reading the article. If the Table of Contents icon is not available you should be able to use the Skip to page icon on the left to see the Table of Contents page. There may be interactive links within the Table of Contents page for some magazine issues so that you can go quickly to a specific article of interest. The Zoom feature has changed a bit and now uses the technology of the viewer. Did you try positioning the cursor to where you want to zoom and then double tap on the touch pad or double tap the left button of the mouse? For your interest there is a help link on the Zinio page to submit an online support inquiry. The vendor will try to respond within 24-48 hours.
