"Good morning - I am about to check out a set of Nooks to a teacher and her students for the first time and I was wondering if you have or know of a survey that the students and teacher could fill out about the experience. Thank you. Judy Hauser"

"Hello - May I ask how many Nooks you purchased for students and how you are handling accounts? I was told I can only have, I believe, six devices on one account."

"I had someone on Etsy.com make bags for the Nooks I lend out from our school library.  Students check out a bag with the Nook and they are supposed to keep it in the bag.  The bags are lined, padded cotton, so I can wash them occasionally."

My Nook program has officially started!

A few days ago, I checked out the first 3 Nooks for literature circles/book clubs!!!  The students were SO excited and I'm so happy to have the program up and running!  I wish I had taken pictures, but it was in the middle of another class, so I just didn't have the time.  You can read the full post on my Wordpress blog, A Wrinkle in Tech.  I hope to have some more reflections and thoughts after I teach the rest of 4th and 5th…See More

C Adams replied to Patty McClune's discussion Cataloging Kindles and Nooks
"Can you duplicate the MARC record and change the material type to ebook?  That's how I'm cataloging them for elementary, so the Nook book and the print book show up."

C Adams replied to Karen Kliegman's discussion NookColor Concerns
"I don't think settings can be locked, as far as I know.   I know what you mean by the "erase and deregister" setting being available.  It all comes to down to how much you trust the students who are checking out. If you…"

C Adams replied to Becky Miller's discussion Purchasing eBooks for the entire faculty to use
"Follett Shelf offers a product like this with their Unlimited, Simultaneous licenses.  They don't have many titles, but maybe they could check with the publisher and negotiate something for your school?"

C Adams replied to Sharon Minnoch's discussion MARC records for ebooks? in the group Nook Users
"Once I get them, I'm planning on adding my Nooks as an AV device with its own MARC, then adding the titles on that Nook in the Notes section of that MARC record.  They can still be displayed, and they'll show up in a Destiny search…"

This is the record I modified from ACCESS PA for use at my school.  Feel free to download it and upload to your library's OPAC.  It already has 6 copies/Nooks listed, so you can change the barcode numbers as needed.

To get started, see if there is a group you would like to join--this is a way to expedite communication between people with the same interests. And we'd love it if you'd upload a profile photo--go to settings under your name on the right and the option to upload is right at the top!
