 +The eLibrary Project Partnership seeks to make a difference in education by introducing essential digital resources (encyclopedias,​ books, training videos, etc.) to schools in remote areas where the Internet is at best spotty if not altogether unavailable. (See [[why-an-elibrary-system|Why eLibrary?​]];​ some project locations: [[http://​library.ph/​locations|library.ph/​locations]])\\

 +Every [[elibrary-system|eLibrary Project]] is a partnership between a school and the eLibrary Project champions. The hardware and technologies that make up the [[elibrary-system|Tambayayong eLibrary System]] (TeLS) or the [[library-box|Library In a Box]] //support// the partnership formed around the idea of technology-assisted holistic education. Every partner school has to take ownership of [[elibrary-system|the Project]] by incorporating the [[elibrary-system|eLibrary]] into its teaching and learning activities. Teachers have to demonstrate substantial use of the system by incorporating its materials in their lesson plans and instructional activities. Students need to reflect certain materials from the eLibrary in their learning portfolios, book reports, curricular and non-curricular activities. School administratrors also have to provide supporting infrastructure and to encourage greater utilization of the [[elibrary-system|eLibrary service]].

 +The eLib Project in the media: [[https://​www.facebook.com/​dzup1602am/​videos/​2317693355133232/​ |DZUP "​Serbisyong Tatak UP" - February 4, 2019]]\\ \\
 +=====How it works=====
 +The "​product"​ is a stand-alone,​ browser-accessible repository of digital resources: the eLibrary. Students and teachers will use a wifi access point ("​Tambayayong eLibrary"​),​ open the browser and point it to "​library.ph"​ (or 172.24.1.1) to access the repository. No internet required.

Pre-deployment preparations have to be done by the technology providers as well.
  
 For a scaled-up deployment, the technology support providers need to partner with colleges or institutions nearby capable of technically supporting the project. This can mean providing a trainors'​ training on the setup and deployment of the eLibrary system as well as on the training of school teachers and students. For a scaled-up deployment, the technology support providers need to partner with colleges or institutions nearby capable of technically supporting the project.

 At the school site, the technology support providers have to conduct training among the school faculty on the use of eLibrary System. Students (either en masse or through their representatives) will also have to be engaged on the use the materials in the eLibary. At the school site, the technology support providers have to conduct training among the school faculty on the use of eLibrary System.

 +===== eLib Contents===== 
 +[[library-box#​contents|The initial contents]] of the [[library-box|eLibrary in a Box]] are [[library-box#​contents|indicated here]]. They are primarily for K-12 instruction. Other use cases of the eLib could mean different sets of contents, ​to be determined by the eLib's principals or technology providers.  
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +The contents of [[elibrary-system|Tambayayong ​eLibrary ​System]] (TeLS), on the other hand, are self-curated by teachers and administrators of the partner school. The initial contents may include open resources ​from  [[http://​openebooks.net|Open Ebooks]], [[https://​www.gutenberg.org|Project Gutenberg]],​ [[http://​manybooks.net|Many Books]], [[https://​didactalia.net/​|Didactalia]],​ or those sources with creative commons licenses like [[https://​www.khanacademy.org|Khan Academy]] and[[https://​www.ted.com|Ted]]. 
 +\\ 
 +\\ 
 +Donated digital resources may also be included. The instructional needs of the school are scoped, before the contents are put together and the Tambayayong eLib gets deployed. 
 +\\ 
 +===== Project Cost and Sustainability ===== 
 +  * Direct Cost. The direct cost of the Project is related to the hardware necessary to deploy either the [[elibrary-system|Tambayayong eLibrary System]] (TeLS) or the [[library-box|Library in a Box]]. Schools with hundreds or thousands of students will likely need the former, which means deploying enterprise servers (ranging from P50,000 to P150,​000--depending on the hardware specs to serve a certain number of concurrent users), enterprise wifi access points (about P30,000), gigabit switch (about P5,000). \\  \\ The [[library-box|Library in a Box]], on the other hand, only requires a microcomputer (Raspberry Pi - about P3,000 per kit, including power supply, heat sink and casing) and Class 10 microSD (about P1,200). \\ \\ Recommended Add-on: access devices (like Android Tablets - about P3,000 a piece) to be stationed at the physical library of the school. \\ \\ 
 +  * Indirect Cost. Indirect costs (like accommodation and fare) are shouldered by project partners. 
 +  * Sustainability. See [[Tambayayong eLibrary Project Sustainability]]. 
 +\\ 
 +=====Opportunities to Help===== 
 +  * access devices. Used smart phones, tablets, laptops may be donated directly to partner schools. 
 +  * eLib Box components: Raspberry Pi 3 microcomputers,​ microSD cards, power supplies, heatsinks. Donate these through technology service providers in coordination with partner schools. 
 +  * digital materials. If you are in a position to legally share appropriate digital materials, they may be donated to eLib Project'​s curators or technology service providers who in turn will incorporate your materials to the repository. 
 +  * promotional materials. If you have the talent to help develop promotional materials, let us know. 
 +\\ 
 +Email contact@tambayayong.mainit.org if you wish to help or offer your time for the eLib Project.
