Are you still not sure what the difference is between ‘Digital Editions’ offered by The Spinney Press, and the Issues in Society ebooks for library lending offered by our ebook platforms?

It’s simple, really ...

‘Digital Editions’ are interactive PDF files which are only available to Australian secondary schools and supplied by an emailed download link. Once you have downloaded the initial link, the flexible site licence allows every student and staff member at your school to repeatedly download their own digital copies of Issues in Society titles. All schools need to do is host the ‘Digital Editions’ on their network or library system using their own regular secure password log-in. ‘Digital Editions’ are only supplied direct from The Spinney Press and are available separately, or by subscription.

Issues in Society ebooks for library lending are ideal for public libraries, TAFE colleges and universities as they are hosted on a secure library lending platform which is compatible with all major library lending systems and devices (standard digital rights lending restrictions apply). Our ebook platform partners include: James Bennett/Axis 360, Wheelers Books, OverDrive Content Reserve, eBooks on EBSCOhost, Ebook Library (EBL) and ebrary. Contact your ebook library platform supplier directly for more information on the Issues in Society series.
