Scottsdale schools’ e-book purchases starting to pay off

Arizona Republic – “Scottsdale schools took a leap of faith last year by spending $50,000 on online e-book technology that may not endure longer than a Betamax videotape.

So far, the risk has paid off.

There were 44,000 e-book hits Aug. 1 through March 1, according to Sharon Ewers, librarian at Arcadia High School and head librarian for the Scottsdale Unified School District. The money came from a pool of $627,000 the district’s libraries receive annually as their share of the 2007 override passed by Scottsdale voters.”
