Expanding Access to Digital Reading Resources by Sharing
With budgeting always a concern, schools are getting creative to ensure the best return on investment for their shift to digital content. Learn about Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13’s story of delivering eBooks and audiobooks to 22 districts (and more) with a shared collection. This powerful solution enables two or more schools or districts to access digital content via a joint platform, with all purchased titles available to all members through this central access point.
In this engaging edWebinar, Instructional Media & Technology Consultant Ken Zimmerman discussed how the shared collection model allowed IU13 to:
- Maximize purchasing power and provide a robust selection of reading resources to students and educators
- Register thousands of checkouts per month across entire school communities, including “secret readers” who now enjoy the privacy and 24/7, anywhere access that digital offers
