  • {"13":"Follett Shelf. ownership. devices. improvements. most books full function but some scanned. Some titles multi use but most individual use. Marc records provided. k-12 focused\n","14":"Can host other platforms as well as publishers they represent. Portal site is FREE. Also have 30,000 titles PK-12. including ABC Clio, Britannica, Gale, Lerner. Multi-user? MARC records free. authenticates w/one password. New app about to roll out.\n","21":"Number of devices is increasing; especially in adults over 50 which means by high school, some students may have access to their parent’s device also. For public libraries, over 50 is the most rapid adoption group according to the Pew Internet research study.\n"}

    3. 3. Positives What’s good about ebooks?
    4. 4. Issues with ebook market • pricing • models for schools • multiple formats/apps • usage--Pew survey • promotion • misconceptions about availability What’s your issue? #il2013e
    5. 5. Ranking concerns
    6. 6. Other issues “In my district, budgets are not adjusted to the price of ebooks. We get the same amount of money, without the consideration of the cost. We need to have discussions at the district & campus levels (where the money comes from) so those who make those decisions see the ebook issues and price discrepancies. We (school librarians) are expected to purchase ebooks for the classrooms & for pleasure reading by students, but we are not given the appropriate funds to do so.”

    26. 26. Librarians speak We want better! • “We want multi-user access and a single platform for access.” • “If you don’t take my print books off the shelf after 26 checkouts or 12 months, why do you feel justified in taking my ebooks away?” • School libraries and public libraries are very different entities. Our loan models and access is very different. When the Big five or Big six publishers are making their prices and lending models for the adult book reader, they need to consider students and schools. • “It should be as easy for students to check out fiction (ebooks) as it is for them to use our nonfiction (ebook) collection.” • “Students need really easy interfaces and don’t want to have to click through multiple portals.”
