ASCD has made its entire professional development ebook catalog of more than 300 titles available to Barnes & Noble NOOK Study users.

ASCD ebooks in the NOOK library range in topic from leadership to homework to instructional planning, and encompass everything in between-from employing the Understanding by Design framework to differentiating instruction. Featured authors include many of the top thinkers in education, among them Robert J. Marzano, Charlotte Danielson, Carol Ann Tomlinson, Grant Wiggins, Jay McTighe, Ronald A. Wolk, Mike Schmoker, Robyn R. Jackson, Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Wade Boykin, and Pedro Noguera. Recent releases like Classroom Instruction That Works: Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement, 2nd Edition; Turning High-Poverty School into High-Performing Schools; and A World-Class Education: Learning from International Models of Excellence and Innovation are also available.

Barnes & Noble's free NOOK Study application enables PC and Mac users to purchase and download etextbooks and academic and trade titles from Barnes & Noble's digital library, take searchable notes, and interact with content in meaningful ways. The application also enables student users to access and organize all course materials made available by participating professors, from lecture notes to syllabi.

Many of ASCD's titles are also available for purchase in the online ASCD Store in ebook bundles that comprise three formats: PDF, EPUB for the NOOK e-reader, and MOBI for the Kindle e-reader. The multiple formats enable educators to more easily and conveniently access ASCD's new content.
