Hi, BAISL Members!
Before you head off for summer, the OverDrive selection committees would
like to encourage you to join the shared collection for next Fall. This has
been our first year with this shared service and it's been great to have
access to a growing collection of books at a very reasonable price.
This year, the PreK-8 and High School Selection Committees established the
- Collection Development
- Materials request form
please use this form to request titles for the Selection Committee to
consider for Shared Collection purchases
For those who haven't joined yet, please consider doing so by contacting
Kevin Coon at kcoon@xxxxxxxxxxxxx who will provide an invoice for the cost
(scaled based on school size). The fees you pay go into the shared
collection fund to purchase books all member schools can access. Any
additional books you want to purchase for your own school or you would like
to transfer from another ebook platform can stay in your own account
(what's called your Advantage account - only your school sees those titles).
We currently have about 1,000 titles in the Shared Collection. Those who
are already members and have larger collections in your Advantage account,
please consider transferring some of your content to the Shared Collection
to make it a more robust collection for all. The Selection Committees would
like to review this content before it gets added to the Shared Collection
to make sure it is all in line with our Shared Collection Development
policy, so please share a spreadsheet of the titles you would like to
Have a wonderful summer and see you next year!
