where educators come to learn from one another
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? No answer yet. The model is still one book/one user which I don't really have a problem with because so many of the school library issues are being addressed such as settings for check-out etc. I did bring up holds. Also, asked about how to tell which titles come with audio prior to purchase. This product has a lot of potential. I will continue to post about it as I get information.
