We're very pleased to provide you with an update on our new eBook platform which will be going live in the next couple of months. We will be working with Overdrive to provide eBooks, eAudio, eMagazines and eComics through their platform and Sora App. We will be in touch soon with more detailed information but if you would like to have a look at the App have a look here: Overdrive Sora App . Thank you to those schools that have offered to be early adopters and testers of the new eBook platform.

As part of the review of our digital offer, we will not be including access to The Day from April. This has been a difficult decision as we know that some schools use this resource well; however across all our subscribers use is very low and we have taken the decision to invest in eComics and eMagazines instead which we believe will have wider impact for our schools. Schools have the option of continuing their subscription independently by contacting SLS will consider arranging a consortium subscription for schools wishing to continue if there is sufficient interest.

If you would like to talk about this or any of the changes to our provision, please contact our HQ team at
