Celebrate Open Access Week with a Library E-book Reader
The Library has 28 older model e-book readers (Sony Reader Touch PRS-600) that have been used with specific classes in past semesters. We are now going to make these e-book readers available to the college community. They are old devices (no wireless, no extra features, b&w screen) but work fine for just reading some e-books. These Sony Readers can be checked out for 3 weeks just like a print book.
The e-books available on these devices include books by Cory Doctorow, Gabriela Coleman, Lawrence Lessig and classics like Kate Chopin’s The Awakening and Solomon Northrup’s Twelve Years a Slave. You are also free to download e-books that are “borrowed” from the Library e-book collection too.
