Brain Hive Offers On-Demand K-12 E-book Library Lending – Publishers Weekly – Calvin Reid
At a time when libraries and publishers are clashing over the ability to lend e-books, Brain Hive, a Minneapolis-based firm, is offering an alternative. Brain Hive is an on-demand pay-as-go e-book lending service offering K-12 schools online access to a library of digital titles.
… The service offers a collection of about 3,000 e-book titles including fiction, nonfiction and graphic novels aimed at the K-12 education market. The service includes titles from major publishers including Random House Children’s Books, Charlesbridge Publishing, Lerner Publishing, Lee & Low Books, Gecko Press, Open Road Integrated Media and others.
What a great idea for schools with limited budgets! Teachers and students can “check-out” books for unlimited amounts of time and have multiple copies. Great concept!
