These components can be purchased directly from Lazada and Shopee, or Amazon or some other online stores:

  • Raspberry Pi 3 B (not to be confused with Raspberry Pi 3 B+)
  • microSD card (64GB, Class 10 or faster, preferably branded). This should be a copy of a prepared disk image of the eLib Box that contains the OS and the materials (See How to Prepare an eLib Box SDcard Image). Image available at downloads.library.ph.
  • Power Supply for Raspberry Pi 3B
  • casing

Price estimate: ~ Php4,000.

Tool

  • screwdriver


Physical Assembly



Once properly put together and turned on, the box will have a WIFI access point “Tambayayong eLib Box”. Log in using the password tambayayong. To access the eLibrary collection in the box (WITHOUT Internet connection), point your browser to library.ph

Optional

Please geolocate your deployment of the eLibrary Box, so we can put you on the map. One way to geolocate a school, for instance, is to use a mobile app called UTM Geo Map. Send the coordinates and the name of the school or institution to contact@upsilab.org. Sending pictures of students and teachers (with their permission) using the eLib Box would be nice as well.
