Heading to ALA this June? Wondering just what to do (or not to do) with e-books, and e-reader devices that seem to proliferate every 2.5 seconds? Then spend an afternoon with the Southern California Technical Processes Group as we take on the issues surrounding e-readers and e-books.The adoption of e-reading devices and e-books in libraries presents a number of challenges, including implementation, selection, management, training (for staff and users alike), and access. This workshop will provide an overview of the current landscape of devices, platforms, and issues related to the adoption and implementation of e-readers and e-books, with speakers from academic and public libraries, as well as e-book vendors
