The FAQ would be linked out of the web opac (in the 856 field) for each title on the Nook or mp3 player and also from other locations.  Has anyone done this, especially for an academic library?  We have 5 Nooks we started lending out for two hour loans today.  We also have four Sansa Fuze MP3 players for audio books.

I have written directions on downloading Overdrive ebooks and other free 
content into Nooks at


I can't tell whether this could help your or not.

Your email does not clear explain what questions the FAQ should answer 
about Nooks and mp3 players.

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. ~ Daniel Burnbam, Architect for Plan of Chicago, 1909

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
