Description
E Books are growing in popularity and their use in schools is rapidly gaining attention on listservs, in journals, and blogs. Through this grant, students in LIBS 679 and other Darden College of Education classrooms will have access to both the Nook and Kindle for sharing literature. Students in LIBS 679 will gain practice in selecting, evaluating, and acquiring titles for e-readers. They will compare the ease of use and appropriateness of these two popular devices for use in libraries and classrooms. The instructors will observe the use of the e-reader in graduate level classes as students participate in literature review.
