To bring teachers and students on board with borrowing eBooks

We had 36 new accounts between August and January (the latest data), 7 of which were teachers. The others were students.
We will stick with the project now that the Chromebook rush seems to be more under control. Also, I now have students who are completing independent studies with me, and who are willing to help me with this project. They're making posters and carrying Kindles around to promote eBooks. The project won't ever be over - it will continue next year, too, until I have a better, larger percentage of eBook accounts. I think it will take a few years to get everyone on board - I'll focus on freshmen each year, and see how it goes.
This turned out to be a difficult year for anything new, because we went 1-1 with Chromebooks on 9/1, and the logistics have fallen to me. I'm the support for technical difficulties as well as the source for borrowing Chromebooks (they all forget them at home!!). So unfortunately, the eBook project did not receive the level of attention it needed to be successful. We did get 36 new users, though! And some of those were teachers. We do have a bulletin board with photos and testimonials from our new eBook users (those who agreed to do it), and we still are handing out promotional book marks with instructions on how to create accounts. Perseverance!
