The EBook Pilot Project -- Read all about it!
Whittemore Library has been selected as an EBook Pilot School
by Massachusetts Library Systems
We have been chosen to participate in a pilot program that will give us access to new and exciting E-content.
Books and other materials are available for students, faculty and staff at FSU before anyone else in the state. Just search, checkout, and download to a device, and you're off and running.
The MA eBook Project is brought to you by the Massachusetts Library System in partnership with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and your school library, funded in part, by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services.
