eReaders in School Libraries
Sutton, Amy
School Library Monthly, v29 n7 p11-13 Apr 2013
This article explores the possibility of using eReaders in the schools of the Houston Independent School District (HISD), specifically the Barnes and Noble Nook Pilot Project. HSID initially approved only an eReading device that was not wireless since it is very strict on the devices granted access to the wireless network. The biggest roadblock for using eReaders in HSID schools is the manner in purchasing the device and content. The goals of this project were to expose the department to the Nook managed account process, to expose students to eReaders, and to encourage reading through the use of technology.
