Last spring, I signed up for Whispercast with Amazon for our High School Library’s 5 Kindles. Our Board of Education/Treasurer’s Office’s physical address, our Treasurer, and my building and position has changed. I’m on the phone with Amazon trying to work through it because I can no longer access our Whispercast account. I’m sure it is because of all of these changes.
I’m a big believer in using Overdrive in our K-12 Libraries. It prepares students for what is out there when they graduate in both the real world (Public Libraries) and higher education (University Libraries). I am getting increasingly frustrated at both Barnes and Noble and Amazon. They are not making it easy for Librarians to manage their Kindles/Nooks, etc. to access material we have purchased in digital format. The jury is still out on Kindle’s new Whispercast for managing our Kindles. I’ll keep updating as we go through this process.
