School Libraries Struggle with E-Book Loans

School Libraries Struggle with E-Book Loans | Connecting to ebooks | Scoop.it

That’s true for all libraries, but it’s especially true for school libraries, many of which already face budget woes and as such, have to weigh carefully how to invest in new books to stock the shelves."

Amazon Alters Rules for Kindles in School Libraries

Amazon Alters Rules for Kindles in School Libraries | Connecting to ebooks | Scoop.it

Amazon has apparently created new rules governing the use of its Kindle ereader in school libraries. The website of the ecommerce giant states that content cannot be loaded across multiple devices at one time, and an Amazon rep told at least one school librarian, Buffy Hamilton, that ebooks cannot be ported to more than one device. Amazon also requires that each Kindle be tethered to its own account.
