"I have follett shelf but my patrons don't like reading the books on a computer or laptop.  Also, since I don't have too many ebooks, when they go to check out an ebook, since there are not unlimited copies, it is often checked out.…"

FollettShelf has launched - 6th grade done; 7th on Monday

 Follettshelf is off and running here.  We are a K-8 public school.  I chose to have our first shelf target our 6-8 graders with an eye of adding the 5th grade very soon.The pluses are that students can select their choices from any Internet connected device. To get all the current bells and whistles of FollettShelf they need to read off a computer or laptop (any platform).  They can read from mobile devices but in the ebook format.  Very doable just fewer features.  An android app is coming in…See More

"I'll e-mail Follett this week at work (and perhaps follow up with some phone calls too).  I'll also inform colleagues who also have Destiny as their online library catalogs!"

"I had a lengthy conversation with several people at Follett about the ereader compatibility. They are keenly aware that this is the direction everyone wants to go and needs to go. However due to several issues not the least of which is software…"

Elisabeth LeBris replied to Karen Anderson's discussion Is anyone using the IPAD ?
"Yes. I bought mine in June. The more I use it, the more I use it: at work, at home, on the road everywhere. It has become a wonderful blend with my phone. Cannot imagine life without it now. PS no problem reading off it in any light. I just adjust…"

Follett Shelf

Follett Shelf goes live in January. Just met with our rep and her supervisor. Peppered them questions about the future of this application and its future with mobile devices (which is where I am interested in proceeding with my students. we are a K-8 public school district). So far for all the bells and whistles to fire you have to use it on a computer but it is already usable on mobile devices as a simple reader. The true mobility is according to them coming. OK...when would that be exactly?…See More
