Many college and university libraries support teacher education programs, but it can be a challenge to curate e-book collections that include relevant literature appropriate for readers ranging from pre-reader items to young adult. It’s also important for libraries to consider including selections that reflect and celebrate the full range of human experiences and a diversity of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical and mental abilities, religion, and culture.
In a recent webinar, EBSCO partnered with three top trade publishers to provide academic libraries with a robust selection of new and popular juvenile and young adult (YA) e-book selections. Each publisher shared their most popular selections of e-books across a variety of topics with a particular focus on diverse, inclusive, and equitable (DEI) content.
Watch the webinar replay to hear presenters Ivy Weir from EBSCO Information Services, Kristen Pozzuoli from DK, Amanda Fensch from Penguin Random House, and Ana Perez from Simon & Schuster talk about some of their most popular selections of e-books to help libraries support teacher preparation program and courses.
To further assist libraries, we are pleased to offer title lists of the e-books presented during the program as well as other top picks and helpful resources. The majority of the e-books presented during the program are available through EBSCO eBooks™ and can be purchased using EBSCOhost Collection Manager (ECM.)
