Cataloging Nooks

I have been searching the internet for some librarian's notes on how they process any new Nooks into their circulation system.  But everything I found is from 2011 or earlier.  Can anyone recommend or share a good website with suggestions on processing new Nooks before they are loaned out?  Or is everyone still using these suggestions from before?  Thanks!See More

"That's what I have been hearing too but I guess no one can get anything in writing.  It just seems to be a verbal agreement.  Thanks for the response!"

Copyright Issues

I am from a high school in PA and we are looking at purchasing Kindles to loan out to students.  Right now there is some buzz around my coordinator asking if we are breaking any copyright laws or breaking Amazon's Terms of conditions with distributinig the device.  Here are the terms of conditions from Amazon.  This was taken from another discussion started by another member.  But it causes me to stop and think.  Has anyone else been through the thought process about this?    Here is a list of…See More

Rita Ann Thompson replied to Anne Weaver's discussion Kindles terms of use
"Hmmmm....can other librarians state how they did get around the terms of use?  It is an important question and one that we as well are looking at.  I know that so many libraries are already loaning them out.  It would be a great help…"
