Circulating E-reader Support Materials
This collection of documents was created to support a recent program to loan Nook e-readers, which we pre-loaded with best-selling ebooks, to seniors. The goal of the program was to encourage transliteracy and make new technologies available to seniors. This pilot was funded by a grant from Library Services and Technology Act administered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Included is a presentation offering a general overview of Barnes & Noble's Nook Simple Touch designed for use with patrons in our Central Senior Services department, guidelines for circulating Nooks using our SIRSI Symphony ILS (which includes our circulation policies for Nooks), a waiting list for patrons who would like to borrow a Nook, and a signup sheet for one-on-one trainings that allowed us to track our outreach efforts. Please modify, build upon, and re-share these documents.
