SLS Update 11/08/2011 eBook Update

All- please see below for updates regarding the SLS eBook Library:

  1. We have received the records for the Rosen New York State eBook Collection!  Karen Mitchell has just finished uploading them to the SLS eBook library.  A keyword search for Rosen will display the eBooks.  Note, these titles are aligned to the 5th grade curriculum.  When using the eBooks from Rosen, be sure to explore all the enhanced features (primary source documents, biographies, multimedia items…) located along the left hand side.

  2. Reminder, please submit request for eBook purchases from eBrary to Patti Rose (prose@monroe2boces.org).  The materials found in this collection are primarily for High Schools.  I am attaching a list provided to me from ProQuest which lists the top purchased titles.

The URL to eBrary is http://site.ebrary.com/lib/m2boces.

  1. We have purchased an additional 434 titles from Marshall Cavendish.  We are still waiting for the records to arrive.  I am attaching a listing of the new titles we will be receiving from this company.  Attached is a listing of the new titles.  Once we have the records and they have been uploaded to the eBook Library, I will let everyone know.

  2. I am in the process of finalizing the purchase list for eBooks from InfoBase Publishing.  Once the order is submitted, I will let everyone know.

  3. A long term goal is to add age ranges into the records (Elementary, Middle or High).  If anyone is interested in assisting with this project, please let me know.

  4. We will be updating the eBook Informational Flyer.  After it is updated, I will let everyone know.

  5. The BOCES SLS welcomes the opportunity to do presentations to your faculty or individual departments on using the eBook collection.  On Wednesday, January 4, 2012 from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. or Thursday, January 5, 2012 from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. we will be holding a workshop for any teachers, librarian, or library staff member on how to use this collection.  To register, please contact Patti Rose (prose@monroe2boces.org).

 

If anyone has any questions, comments, or concerns regarding the eBook collection, please let me know.
