Sora Showcase

Sora Showcase is our user-friendly, interactive discovery kiosk software designed to raise awareness and increase access to your digital collection throughout your schools. It highlights titles from your school’s Sora collection, giving students and staff the opportunity to explore and familiarize themselves with your content.

Sora Showcase works on devices ranging from tablets to large screen displays.

What is Sora Showcase?

Students can search and sample titles. When they find something they like, they can easily generate a QR code to borrow the title in Sora to start reading right away. If a student doesn’t yet have Sora on their personal device, Sora Showcase provides a QR code for that, too!

It’s easy to customize so you can ensure it best fits the needs and interests of students at your school. You can use the showcase to:

  • Promote new titles in high traffic areas of your school
  • Highlight juvenile books like read-alongs on kid-friendly touchscreen devices for elementary students
  • Highlight your YA collection in a high school
  • Draw attention to non-fiction materials in the reference section of your library
