Simon & Schuster Launches Pilot Program with Four Leading Educational Distributors to Bring eBooks to Classrooms Nationwide
Effective immediately, schools may work with the participating distributors to purchase digital copies for the classroom. Each ebook purchased may be used in the classroom for one year from the purchase date, and may only be used by one student at a time.
“We’re pleased to work with these four widely-respected and innovative educational distributors in this first important step toward bringing our catalog to students and teachers,” said Michael Selleck, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Simon & Schuster, Inc. “As more and more in-classroom and take-home reading takes place online and via eBook readers and tablets, publishers can help create future generations of readers and contribute to the health of our nation’s educational system by providing books in the formats that schools need to help students learn.”
