# 22 & # 23 - Ebooks & Audiobooks

We have been discussing the use of ebooks within our teacher librarian network recently. Great way to improve access to popular texts for students and staff - however the logistics of copyright and access are still causing complications. How do we share them? Can we arrange site licences? And how can we get everyone access - do we need class sets of ebooks readers, or do students borrow them from the library?

It is something we are looking into - but is not yet practical in classroom application for us.

Audiobooks are great! My family have used them for years. A lovely alternative to reading aloud to students or to allow students of low reading ability access to higher level literature...
