    27. 29. Follett Ebooks <ul><li>- Follett ebooks are only available to 1 student at a time. If you want more than one student to access that ebook, you have to buy another ebook in that title. </li></ul><ul><li>-There is no &quot;check in&quot; option with ebooks, you need to determine the check out period. Therefore when a student downloads the ebook, and you establish the check out time (normally 72 hours) once that 72 hours is up, the ebook then appears back in the catalog for checkout again. The default download/checkout period is 3 days, but you can change this. </li></ul><ul><li>-You cannot check in an ebook early, with the 72 hour default, this allows an adequate amount of time to read, as well as quick enough for other students that want to use it. </li></ul><ul><li>-You own this resource forever- no fees, etc. You own the marc record, you own the ebook.- </li></ul>
    28. 31. SO, WHY ARE YOU STILL BUYING PRINT BOOKS?
