We're looking at adding Kindles to our managers' development library. Have you done this? Can you share some pointers?

  • Do you have a contract/terms & conditions that staff need to sign?
  • How have you managed the technical aspect of keeping the Kindles up to date with all books?
  • Have you tweaked the process for requesting/accessing them based on experience?

Thanks in advance!

  1. mmm lots of books?

    One of the challenges is giving the kindle access to the amazon account. the number of time my daughter has accidently bought boks is more than once!

    sure for reading pdf’s – they are great tools, but unless you can find a way of locking them from the acount i.e. read only) then this may prove to be a challenge

    Have you called Amazon?

  2. Like a physical Library…


    Being a library professional, I had proposed to reserve each Kindle/ e-book reader for say, HR, Finance, HBR stuff, Technical Leadership, Innovation, and so on. So each Kindle is a collection. All managers could recommend books to be added; and it was vetted by the Library Committee. Each committee member could use the company’s Amazon account to order books(to save time). 

    Kindles were checked out for 2 weeks and they could be reserved at the library.

    No rules except to respect copyright. Of course, the users were diligent.
