  Conference Call for Students Who Are Blind or Low Vision - April 17, 2011
  Making Bookshare Work for You!

  Bookshare is an online digital library that is free for students in
  the United States.
  High school, college, and graduate students all find the collection to
  be an indispensible resource when it comes to finding the books they
  need for schoolwork and for pleasure reading.

  Join the conversation with Allison Hilliker, Bookshare Collection
  Development Associate and Cherie Miller, Bookshare's University
  Program Manager. We will be taking your questions live throughout the
  discussion. There is no need to pre-register for the event, just call
  in and  join us.


  -          Sunday, April 17, 2011, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST

  -          Phone number to call: 866-210-1669.
  Pass code: 656

  During this discussion you will learn:

  * What Bookshare is and how you can become a member

  * How Bookshare can make your school work and pleasure reading much easier

  * About our new Read2Go app; an app specifically designed for the
  Apple iOS that will allow for quick download and easy reading of
  Bookshare books on the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone

  * How to use Bookshare most efficiently and effectively with your
  notetaker or digital book player.



  We look forward to talking with you on April 17!
