E-book distribution If successful, YC plan to purchase 10-20 e-readers to support the book club. Each month a new e-book will downloaded onto the e-reader for the book club member to take away with them and utilise. Loaning All e-readers and tablets will be barcoded and registered to the Yeovil College library loaning system. Downloading ebooks to the readers How will this work? Each E-reader will be registered to an individual account or group account – controlled by Yeovil College. No credit card details will be registered to the e-reader accounts. Yeovil College will send a cheque to Yeovil Public library, with the amount needed to purchase the monthly e-books, and cover staff costs. Gift certificates will be sent from a master account (controlled by the public library), to the individual e-reader accounts. The gift certificate account will be the exact price to purchase the required e-book. The public library will then invoice Yeovil College for the total cost of the e-books each month. As well as the cost for their staff time. This will be debited from the budget fund. YC staff member will then access each account individually, and purchase the e-book using the gift certificate sent from a Master account. The e-book will now be available to download. The e-book readers have parental locks that can stop the internet being accessed by the user. Only downloaded e-books will be available to the user. Therefore, the online book will remain un-downloaded until the book club meet. The group will meet, and all e-book readers will be collected and unlocked by a member of LC staff. Once unlocked, and connected to the WIFI. The individual accounts will be accessed and the books will be downloaded.


After all new e-books have been downloaded, the parental lock will be re-engaged. The ereader will then be returned to the user at the end of the book club meeting.
