We are forming a review committee to evaluate TumbleReadables, an online collection of read-along titles for elementary, middle school, and high school students which features adjustable online text and complete audio narration. We are looking for YA librarians, as well as those involved in adult literacy to review the material and platform using guidelines which Califa will provide.
For more information on TumbleReadables, please see their website at http://www.tumblebooks.com/tumblereadable/about.asp
We are hoping to complete this review by December 20, and expect that each participant will spend about 2 hours reviewing the materials.
If you are interested in being part of this team, please send an email to me at email@example.com and I will respond with trial information and the review guidelines.

Ingenta is now hosting this e-journal and the interface may look a bit different. You will need to use the user name and password (separate from your Califa login) to access subscription content. You can find login information under the link to the Charleston Advisor from the Califa Web site.
We are also working with TumbleBooks to introduce their latest product, TumbleReadables, that features high-interest/low vocabulary audiobooks for young adults.
Please take some time to evaluate the trial, which is active until the end of the year and send along any feedback you may have.
