Findaway’s first-ever eReader solution delivers a diverse library spanning best-sellers, classics, professional development, and entertainment selected by the Navy. The Navy eReader Device (NeRD) was developed in conjunction with the NGLP, an essential component of the U.S. Navy’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) program.

With its array of pre-loaded titles, all accessible through a single, portable device, the NeRD delivers eBook content to encourage leisure and entertainment and promote professional growth. The NeRD augments the NGLP’s range of library services, which includes web-based digital library access to service members and their families at no charge.

By integrating the NeRD into the NGLP, the Commander, Navy Installations Command addresses a challenge common to outfitting maritime vessels with library collections—storage restrictions. Officers and enlisted Sailors have limited access to the Navy’s Library Multimedia Resource Center (LMRC) as a result of physical storage restrictions.

NeRD addresses this requirement by consolidating a library that accommodates vessel restrictions in a user-friendly, mobile format.

Findaway World has served both the US Government (USG) and military since 2007, delivering over one million digital media devices with pre-loaded content to more than 70 countries throughout the world.
