Introducing ePlatform Books

ePlatform Books Flyer

Wheelers Books are New Zealand’s largest online supplier of print books, eBooks & Audiobooks to schools, public libraries and educational institutions offering an impressive range of over 15.6 million books sourced from around the world. Wheelers do their utmost to develop innovative solutions that suit the individual needs of schools and public libraries. We developed our eBook and Audiobook library lending platform – ePlatform, which is now live in more than 35 countries and over 2,000 schools and public libraries. It’s empowering Librarians to build an inspiring digital library, and we’re coming to a school near you to show you why, where we would love for you to come along to learn more & have the ability to ask questions of our team on the day.
Topics covered include:

  • Finding out more about the exciting advances in eLending and how they can benefit your school.
  • Hearing success stories with simple tips to ensure student engagement.
  • Find out how to customise and configure your library to suit you.
  • Simple steps to create a vibrant eLibrary.
  • Publisher Updates: New eBook publishers and ordering tips and tricks.
  • Library Management System Integration
  • Future enhancements

DHS has, as a result of this seminar, adopted the new Wheelers e-Platform called Platform One. We are the first School in South Africa to go live with Platform One. This gives our readers (our School Community) access to 1000 new titles from the best authors and publishers on an annual basis with the titles being selected according to our readership. This list is reviewed monthly and titles which are not popular will be pulled and replaced by new titles, ensuring that we have an excellent selection for our readers at all times.
The e-library does not require data for the users to read books – only to browse and download their choice. These are very small downloads and take very little data. The new platform offers a new feature which enables readers to change preferences such as type style and size as well as background and text colours. It also allows for notes to be made, and word definitions to be accessed. Loans are for two weeks and then disappear from your device (no late books and no fines!) – The reader can then renew the book if required. Books can be reserved and requested, too. This platform has also become more user-friendly – it is now App based rather than Web based. Borrowing books is now extremely easy. Follow these steps and start reading….

  • Download the Wheelers ePlatform app from your app store
  • Find your School name from the selection and register
  • You will be approved and notified via email (to ensure you are a member of our School community)
  • Log in using your username and selected password
  • Browse the selection and borrow and read your selected book.
