Jan, Thanks for your reply. We have three jr. highs and 2 high schools and we were hoping to start building an ebook collection that could be shared by all students. I will continue to use my 10 kindles for book clubs at our school for book clubs. I was hoping to talk to someone who had ordered the ebooks to find how they were working.
Jan, check the Resources tab for the kinds of "useful forms" you are looking for. As for the ereaders themselves, you can find someone here to comment on all of them. I guess looking into how your Gale collection will transfer is critical; the Nook platform does allow "borrowing" of books that are protected by Adobe Digital Editions DRM software. Let me know if you have other questions.
Jan, welcome to the group! Are you investigating the use of ereaders in your district, or do you have a pilot in place already? (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!).
BTW, you can access the Newsletter that went out this week by following this link: http://bit.ly/fOhHPt.
