As you may have seen in the Library of Michigan’s March Dispatch Newsletter, Randy Riley wrote about the RFP process we’re engaged in to support the development of literacy for early readers. Specifically, we’re interested in adding full-text/full book content for early readers.
The technical scoring phase of the process has been completed for the 6 proposals we received and there were 3 eResource vendors (Gale, EBSCO, and Coughlin Capstone ) that passed technical scoring. We are now ready for phase 2 which is to test drive these eResources and share feedback.
There are two parts to this process.
MeL’s early reader product demonstration webinars are this week, with details found in the Google doc above:
Tuesday April 16, 9-10:30 AM, EBSCO
Wednesday April 17, 9-10:30 AM, Gale
Wednesday April 17, 11-12:30 PM, PebbleGo by Capstone
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. And if you know of someone who may not receive posts from the listservs, please feel free to forward this to them. We would like to cast a wide net and invite as many as possible.
Many thanks for your participation in this process!
