Not Your Average Dog-Eared Library Book
Would your students rather stare at a computer screen than touch a print book? Do they think the computer is easier/more reliable? Do you have an eBook reader? Do your students? Have you wondered what is happening to print books? Have you thought about purchasing eBooks for your library? Would your students use them? This session will cover one school's successful experience in purchasing and using FollettShelf from Follett Library Systems.
Topics will include: getting the administration on board, funding, setting up patrons, how the eBooks work, orientation for staff and students, policies, usage reports, linking the eBook collection to Horizon Information Portal and accessing the collection on iPads and other tablet devices.
