Internet@Schools track co-moderator Foote provides an overview of recent news on the ebook front and discusses trends in the ebook market for schools. Then Arriaga and Simons offer detailed steps on their e-reader program and how they streamlined the process of device selection, cataloging, funding, promotion, support programs, and curriculum integration. They address the challenges their program encountered as they navigated through the newly evolving landscape of ebooks in the publishing and retail book industry, as well as how e-readers fit into the life of a library and within OPACS.
