Follett has sponsored a new website,, a timely and robust resource to help educators and districts navigate the eReader highway and answer the critical question "Which Comes First ... Content or Device?"

Follett Library Resources and Follett Software, part of the Follett School and Library Group (FSLG) that also includes Follett Educational Services and Follett International - sponsored the website to serve as a one-stop resource for school and district librarians and administrators to find the information that will help them create the best digital strategy customized to their specific needs.

When users sign up for the free digital diagnostic tool kit, the website will present a clear step-by-step process to help evaluate digital content resources, hardware needs, and understand content licensing terms. Ultimately, will enable districts and schools to connect the right digital tools to their desired learning outcomes.

The website also includes several insightful articles, including:

  • Navigating the eReader Highway
  • Purchase or Lease? Options for School Library eBook Acquisition
  • One Tablet Per Child?
  • eBooks and School Libraries
  • Tips for BYOD K12 Programs
  • Interactive eBook Apps: The Reinvention of Reading and Interactivity
  • School Administrators Are More Open to Mobile Devices, Study Says

Whether it is sorting out the advantages and disadvantages of various mobile devices, such as commercially available dedicated eReaders, or learning how to compare and contrast various licensing agreements, addresses core digital issues with practical information to help educators make the best decisions for their school or district.
