EBooking Your School

FdrTired of musty old textbooks that always seem to be out of date, need expensive replacements and take up a lot of space in an increasingly cramped school? Think eBooks, which are page-by-page digital versions of the same volumes and can be viewed with a dedicated reader (like Amazon’s Kindle), a desktop PC or a notebook. The latest in eBooks is that four major text publishers, Nova Press, Oxford University Press, Temple University Press and Zed Books now are part of Follett Digital Resources’ repository of eBooks. The system now represents the works of 200 publishers and has more than 51,000 elementary, middle- and high-school titles available for instant download. The system keeps all the eBooks ready for a classroom on Follett’s servers and allows teachers and students to browse virtual shelves, preview and download what’s wanted.
