eResources @ ISL
eBooks are rapidly becoming an important part of every library’s holdings. Are you prepared to meet the challenges of your patrons who come in and require help with eReader devices? Does your staff need a little more time and practice with the various e-reader devices that are available out there?
The Indiana State Library has 10 eReader kits available for check out. Each kit contains a Talking Books device, plus eReaders that are commercially available:
- Kindle Fire
- Samsung Galaxy Nook
- Surface Pro
These kits are great for staff training days as well as individual workshops on e-books. An Indiana public or school library may obtain these kits by contacting the PDO at (317) 234-5650 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This listserv was created to give librarians a place to discuss eContent in their libraries and share tips and training materials.
