eBooks




By Barbara Plum

Thanks for this display Barbara. It's a really good idea to promote an eBook collection by display, they can otherwise remain a 'hidden' collection for many students who still browse the shelves rather than search the catalogue. I like the way you have framed the book covers with an iPad.
Here are Barbara's own comments on her display:
'Over the past twelve months our library has been building a collection of e books for use by students and staff. To date loans have been less than impressive. So to promote this new resource I decided to mount a display featuring some of the titles we have and reminding the students of the steps they need to follow to borrow an e book.

Fingers crossed we may manage to spark some more interest in this new direction for libraries'.

Are the "books" on display laminated pictures? It's hard to tell.

Do you have a template for this?

Hi Terese - yes the "books" are laminated photocopies of real book copies - I think I sourced them from Google images.

Hi Erica - I made my own template using an image of an iPad from Google images then cut them out of black card and drew the iPad features in white pastel.
