Distribute District Follett Digital Resources

If you ordered district Follett eBooks (with a district ship-to customer number in Titlewave®), those titles are distributed from your district's Follett Digital platform – depending on the access model of the resources you purchased, and the distribution policy you chose.

Follett Digital access models

The access models of the titles you purchase affect how they can be distributed:

  • Unlimited access titles: These titles can be distributed to one school per copy you purchase. Patrons at that school then have unlimited access to the title.

  • 1-to-1 titles: These titles can be shared among as many schools as you choose. The title is available to patrons at any of the schools you distribute it to, as long as a copy is available.
