Beyond Help: WorldBook eBooks

Adding WorldBook eBooks to your Catalog

   See the column on the right-hand side of this page for the MARC record files for WorldBook eBooks you want to upload. Each file indicates the grade level and number of titles in that file.  If you don't want a particular title to be available to your students, you can delete it after the upload.  Important:   Create a Resource List named WorldBook eBooks first.  Add a co-owner for the list.  Then choose to add the Titles to that Resource List when you Import Titles on the Catalog tab to upload the MARC records for each file of WorldBook eBooks that you want to include in your catalog.  Then, if you decide you do not want them in your collection, or if AskRI is no longer subscribing to them, you can Export and delete the WorldBook eBook titles by choosing to Export and Delete the titles in the WorldBook Resource List that you created.  Please note that eBooks and digital audio books added to the Destiny Back Office (formerly Destiny Classic) may not appear in Destiny Discover until the following day.  (The updating of each version of the catalog can be an overnight process, so the converse is also true -  new eBooks chosen from BookLynx will not appear in the Destiny Back Office version of your catalog until the next day.)

Students and Teachers can read eBooks in World Book’s customized online viewer.   World Book’s eBook collection includes highly illustrated, engaging titles that support a span of curriculum areas and reading levels, with unlimited simultaneous access to all of the books in the collection. This subscription is available to all Rhode Islanders through Students and teachers can create a personal account or use an existing WorldBook Research account to  check out eBooks, and add bookmarks, highlights, and notes that are saved to their account.  Subscribers using a supported tablet device may download the World Book eBook app for offline viewing for free from Google Play (Android devices) and iTunes (iPads).
