Follett has announced a new back-to-school release of its popular FollettShelf hosted digital bookshelf, which includes a new HTML5 reading environment for Follett eContent called Follett Enlight. The new release of FollettShelf provides schools with universal access to quality K-12 eContent in a consistent virtual learning space that promotes critical thinking skills through reading, studying and note taking.

In addition to the Follett Enlight reader, the new release of FollettShelf features two new modules designed to connect eContent to all parts of a school district:

  • FollettShelf Classroom Connections is uniquely designed with classroom teachers and curriculum directors in mind, providing tools for communication like note sharing, reading support, and enhanced reporting functionality. 

  • FollettShelf District Manager is a district level platform that delivers management tools for providing access to Follett ebooks across multiple sites, giving districts one platform and a uniform experience for all schools. Districts with Destiny Library Manger already receive FollettShelf and FollettShelf District Manager functionality.

The new release of FollettShelf offers students the reading experience of the Follett Enlight HTML5 digital reading environment. Follett Enlight allows students to add notes and highlights to an ebook and then view them anywhere they have access to their FollettShelf account. In addition, students now have access to a chosen dictionary based on reading levels. The new reading environment also improves the reading experience on small devices and is integrated with other popular Follett products like the Destiny suite of school resource management solutions.
