We can create a personalised eLibrary for your school and have it up and running within 24 hours.
We'd suggest a shared collection to get you started. With 1,250 eBook titles immediately available to your students the shared collections we offer are not only an extremely efficient use of library budget, but the huge peer selected range engages students from the start. ePlatform One is the name of our shared collection product, learn more here.
Augment the shared collection titles with private collection titles for the exclusive use of your students. These titles seamlessly intermingle with your shared collection titles. This approach allows you to cater to your school's individual needs, but also offer your students a massive range of peer selected titles, at pricing we believe is the best on the planet.
Smart technology, multiple device options and access to the latest titles are just a few of the reasons why students love ePlatform. And regardless of age or ability – it’s also incredibly easy to use.
Students enjoy choice, and through ePlatform you can offer a variety of eBooks that will keep them engaged. Our clever Data Tools will easily identify titles that are popular with specific ages and our expert selectors can help you with specific requirements. Together we can create an exciting eBook collection.
ePlatform is incredibly simple to use. It includes a raft of helpful features that students will appreciate like the ability to customise settings, make annotations, look-up words and save bookmarks. eBooks can be easily borrowed and are returned automatically. They can also be read on a library computer, laptops or mobile devices.
To give students greater freedom – we’ve developed a smart and intuitive reading App. Using the App, students can download and read eBooks on a multiple array of devices with iOS, Android and Windows platforms. Students can read anywhere, and anytime, even offline. Helpfully, the App also synchronises reading location between devices.

Preparing your ePlatform to look amazing with your look and logo is easy. Often we create the banner header area for you using elements from your school's webpage and images - if you are happy with this there is nothing for you to do. In other cases schools prefer to prepare and supply us with their own graphics and that's completely fine. You can also choose your own web address, for example we chose 'lovereading' for our demonstration site http://lovereading.wheelers.co (get a login here).
With a huge range of eBooks and data driven selection tools based on million of eBook loans made by schools similar to yours, you will have a brilliant eBook collection in no time. We have an in-house selections team that can work with you to meet your schools individual needs. We'd suggest starting with our shared collection product ePlatform One so your students get an instant collection selected by your peers, then purchase titles one by one to meet your school's specific needs.
Adding students to access your eLibrary can be daunting, but we have made this super easy by offering some extremely simple methods that will not require IT department assistance and will have you sorted in minutes. Of course we also support LMS integrated methods such as LDAP and SIP2. We suggest start with the simple method to keep momentum going and then switch to the LMS integrated method later. More information on this here.
Once your new eLibrary is stocked with great titles and is looking fantastic it is time to launch it to your students. We are absolutely passionate about student usage. We will help you by providing promotional materials such as posters, bookmarks, shelf wobblers that you can display in the library. We also have a large range of digital assets that you can use to promote the eLibrary on your school's homepage.
