Continuing the Conversation: Integrating E-Books and E-Readers into the Library, with Sue Polanka, Session 2

Submitted by Daniel A. Freeman on August 11, 2011 - 2:34pm

We just wrapped up the second session of the ALA TechSource Workshop Integrating E-Books and E-Readers Into Your Library with Sue Polanka. 

A few security-related questions came in that we did not have time to answer. Here’s Sue’s quick takes. Whether you attended or not, feel free to join the discussion in the comments area!

Has anyone ever had issues with patrons wiping out the content on a device, how do you replace?

Sue: Not yet, but you should be able to very quickly send the content back to the device wirelessly or by drag/drop of files.

In a public library, how do you make sure you get e-readers back?

Sue: Fines.  We charge $25.00 - check the Wright State University LibGuide on ebooks for more information.


How do you prevent patrons for adding titles that would be charged to the library account

Sue: Deregister the devise or remove the credit card from the account.
