If there are books from which you want to select a section or chapter, you
can bundle them into an ePack and refer your students to eBooks.com. They can
then individually log on and download the bundle. But they each need to pay for
the ePack -- as they would if they photocopied the relevant pages. The
difference here is that the money goes to the author and publisher, rather than
to copier maintenance companies.
In time, we expect to be able to offer multiple-user, or site licenses.
Our current small inventory is really just a proof of concept and it's unlikely that you'll find more than one or two titles of interest right now; but we'd be delighted if you did make an ePack. Let us know how you get on. "
I believe it is a very good marketing plan. In fact, I am likely to use the eBooks service because of it.
