ebooks are hot but challenging! If you buy from multiple vendors, how will you handle your catalog and what will you do about patron reserves? Looking ahead, what's the future for ebooks in libraries? Join us for a day-long examination of these issues. Hear from ebook suppliers Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Internet Archive, OverDrive, and 3M regarding their new offerings and special offers. An OCLC representative will discuss the cataloging issues and a panel of experienced librarians will share successes and failures. Christine Lind Hague, Director, Rochester Hills (MI) Public Library and Member of the American Library Association's Office for Information Technology Policy E-books Task Force will keynote the event covering copyright, ownership, and the future of ebooks. Whether you have an ebook collection or are thinking about establishing one, you cannot afford to miss this practical one-day ebook extravaganza.
