E-Readers for E-Books: Options for Libraries
An SCTPG Workshop
Anaheim Public Library Central Branch
Thursday, June 21, 2012

1:00 – 5:00 P.M.

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, use, 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. The panelists are: Michele Potter, Engineering Librarian, U.C. Riverside;  Shirley Quan and Donna Watkins, Orange County Public Libraries; Neil Sorensen representing Ebrary; Kevin Coon, representing OverDrive.

Library representatives will present their experiences with print or electronic PDA at their library – the what, why, and how’s – while YBP representatives will provide the vendor’s perspective in setting up a PDA program at your library.
