Trade Simulation

World Empires & TradeBefore the European Renaissance 

We have three eBook providers, and that is only relevant for you because you will access them differently. 

  • You can read Follett eBooks in Destiny, the online catalog. Only one person can read a Follett book at a time (that will change in December). The reader (top right of screen - Read Online) depends on Flash, which makes them hard to read on an iPad/iPhone, but there is a tiny oval button at bottom of the screen that allows you to Read eBook without Flash. Be sure to click to a page, as the book cover will make it look like it isn't working. You will need our school's password (see p 41 of your planner).
  • We have about 550 ABC-CLIO eBooks. You can locate them two ways: individually, through Destiny, and also through the ABC-CLIO eBook collection. You need to log on to ABC-CLIO to access these. (database key is on database page or you can log in to Google Apps ( and retrieve it from the image on left sidebar here in @THE ANNEX.
  • Gale eBooks are housed in the Gale Virtual Reference Library, but you can also access individual eBooks through Destiny. The Gale password is the same here as it is for Follett eBooks. There are iPad, iPhone, and Droid Apps for all our Gale products that simplify the log-in process, and searching as you can search all eBooks and databases all at once.
