Follett of Canada, an education solutions company, has partnered with eBOUND Canada, a not-for-profit organization advancing Canadian publishers’ digital efforts, to offer schools nationwide eBooks from independent publishers across Canada.
Through the FollettShelf, a free online eBook shelf, and Follett’s Destiny Library Manager, students will have quick and easy access to quality eContent supporting Canadian curriculum standards.
Frank Coster, Vice President of Follett’s Canadian K-12 operations says, “Canadian educators want to ensure their collections of eBooks support the curriculum of their schools, which means purchasing a lot of content from Canadian publishers. This is the same as they have done in the past with print. We are looking forward to working with eBound Canada to make a lot of eContent available from a large number of Canadian publishers.”
“With this agreement, a significant number of Canadian eBooks will finally be available to Canadian schools,” says Robert Hayashi, President and CEO of eBOUND. “Follett’s expertise in the K-12 area is well known to our publishers and educators. We are delighted to bring their services to our membership and we are looking forward to Follett promoting our publisher’s content to educators here in Canada and around the world.”
