E-books may be accessed either ONLINE or OFFLINE. Due to copyright restrictions, most are available to only one patron at a time. If there are specific e-books you would like to see available, please contact one of our librarians about having the library purchase it.
ONLINE E-Book Access
Online (web access) to Follett eBooks is supported by the Full-featured Online Reader or Basic Online Reader. It can be accessed through your computer and the HHS Library’s Destiny card catalog web page. http://destiny.lewis.k12.mo.us/quest/servlet/presentquestform.do?site=101
Online Computer Minimum System Requirements
OFFLINE E-Book Access
E-books may be downloaded to devices which have the Follett Digital Reader app installed. The Follett Digital Reader app is currently available for iPads running iOS 4.0 and newer and Android tablets running Android 3.0 and newer. A screen of at least 7 inches will be needed. Because the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook are proprietary systems and not full Android systems, they will not allow the installation of the necessary app.
You can download the offline reader from the Installation Instructions page.http://www.aboutfollettebooks.com/page.cfm?page_id=31
The iPad® App can be found in the Apple App Store. Download it today.http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/follett-digital-reader/id482587671?mt=8
The Android™ App can be found in Google Play. Download it today.https://play.google.com/store/search?q=follett%20%2B%20android
Once you have downloaded the reader, you will log in with your regular Desitiny username and password. You will also need to plug “wbb32054” into the address blank so that you will access the HHS e-book collection.
The full web version of the Follett Shelf application can also be accessed at:
Downloaded e-books will remain available for two weeks or until “Return Early” is selected on the Digital Reader App.
