The following information is provided for Teachers and School Administrators wishing to understand the MultiLit eLibrary.
Click here for pricing. Please note that prices are for the calendar year to 31 January 2024. There will be an option to renew your eLibrary membership prior to your current subscription expiring.
Yes. The full year eLibrary subscription price is discounted at the beginning of each term, to reflect the shorter access period to the end of the subscription. All subscriptions expire on 31 January of the following year (e.g., 2023 subscriptions expire on 31 January 2024).
Yes, if you would like to upgrade, please contact us at [email protected] with the new tier required. We will organise for these additional user accounts to be added to your subscription, and you will be issued an invoice for the difference in cost between the previous tier and new tier.
The eLibrary uses a browser-based platform, so books can be read on desktop computers or mobile devices (including smartphones and tablets).
This current release of the MultiLit eLibrary does not allow books or levels to be allocated to students, but we plan to add this feature in the future as we develop the platform further.
No, the system does not record which InitiaLit Reader has been accessed online. We recommend keeping a note using a traditional home reading diary or other offline method of recording progress. We plan to add this feature in the future as we develop the platform further.
Yes, schools can select a custom password for their students to use for login to eLibrary. The eLibrary Administrator will need to include this custom password at the point of account creation using the csv template available for download with their login.
Yes. Search for the student’s name you want to remove and select the ‘Disconnect’ button that is aligned to it. You can then add a new student by entering individual details at the top of the administrator’s screen.
We do not have bundles available for the printed Readers and the eLibrary. However, an eLibrary subscription does include access to all four currently published series of InitiaLit Readers online. Total 240 Readers comprising Levels 1-9 (Series 1, Series 2) and Levels 10-16 (Series 1, Series 2).
There are only two emails we send to students. The first email informs them of the website address, and their credentials (comprising username and password). A second email may be sent containing their password, if they ask to be reminded of that. Both emails are sent from [email protected].
Students can access eLibrary by using a combination of username and password created by their eLibrary Administrator. It is presumed students will be logging into MultiLit eLibrary under adult supervision – whether in the classroom with teaching staff or at home with parents/caregivers.
No, this is a dedicated website created specifically for access to the MultiLit eLibrary.
MultiLit stores the name, email address and class of students that are provided to us by the schools that subscribe to this service. This data is hosted in Australia with a reputable hosting company whose commitment to the privacy and security of data meets our high standards.
We also store the name, email address and class of these registered users in a separate database that controls access to the eLibrary site; this is hosted in the US, again with a company that asserts its commitment to the privacy and security requirements we follow.
We have options available to schools that enable them to obfuscate details where there are concerns about privacy. This can include using dummy email addresses or other methods that would prevent anyone from obtaining details about a student.
We do not share personal information with any companies apart from our suppliers providing technology support. This support is provided by a number of carefully selected IT Service Providers who may require access to personal information to performed their assigned duties, though they are engaged under contracts that require them to follow industry best practices over any data they have access to.
