Library-Created Ebook Platforms: An Update
3:30-4:30 pm
Sponsored by Vendor Relations

Session Description

Over the past few years libraries and library organizations have begun creating their own ebook platforms. Each month, it seems another library is considering this as an option to enhance their e-resource collections. During this session, we will discuss the goals and status of these projects, including the possibility of a "national ebook platform".
