Texas Library Snapshot Day
Add non-Mackin eBooks to MackinVia
Also, if you're going to primarily use Follett Shelf on your campus, please let me know so I can make sure to keep your students updated.
OverDrive Promotion Round 1
We will all be promoting OverDrive (and eBooks) between now and November 30th. During this time, we are all going to make a concerted effort to share digital books with students and teachers and take pictures of what you're doing.
Visit the Hub site for ideas and check out this link to our Padlet from today's meeting. Feel free to add more ideas, too!
By December 5th, add a slide to THIS PRESENTATION in which you show at least 3 ways you have promoted OverDrive and eBooks on your campus.
Students - Student ID
Staff - District username just as it shows up in PAC (either all lowercase or mixed upper and lower - if a teacher cannot access OverDrive look at what his/her username is in PAC)
We're getting Polo shirts and T-shirts!
The current ones in the running are as follows:
Read. Learn. Grow.
Readers Today, Leaders Tomorrow
Making. Connecting. Lifelong Learning.
Read. Discover. Inspire.
Your Library. Your Lifeline.
Worlds of Information and ImaginationConnecting Learners, Creating Leaders
We will vote in the coming weeks on the winner!
