Hi Jennifer & all.  We add our Kindles & Nooks to Destiny.  I catalog the device first (including the serial #).  I catalog each device individually - due to different authors/titles going on each device.  In the copy portion of the record I add the price. For the call # I put something like JENKINS KINDLE 1. I also add a note that says what parts/pieces the device has.  The schools then check them out through Destiny.  I know one school has a liability form that must be signed.  To track the authors & titles of the books, I then add a 700 tag (added author) and 740 tag (added title) for each author & title on that device.  Most of our schools have Nooks & for the couple that have Kindles, I'm not sure how that arrangement works with Amazon.  Debbie Martin

Hi, I have a few management questions.  My school is purchasing 60 Kindle Touch's.  1. How do you keep track of them? I was thinking about barcoding them in Destiny.  2. How do you keep track of the books you put on each?  I was thinking of adding to the MARC description field the book titles on each unit.  3. How do you manage them from the Amazon end, do you put up to 6 Kindles on each account?  I think organizing them in increments of 6 is the way to go.  Any other advice, tips, etc. are welcome :-)

Thank you,

Jenn the Librarian

Interesting developments in Kindles. I just saw this annoncment about adding real page numbers to kindle books. There has always been a lot of debate about this so we will see where it goes from here: http://www.kindlepost.com/2011/02/early-preview-of-free-software-up...
