ASLA XXIII Biennial Conference - Dr Jill Abell - Print books are bouncing back with the new bookshop experiences whilst school libraries are using a host of diverse e-commerce models, e-platforms and devices in their efforts to offer digital texts to support new curriculum. The common goal is to adopt e-books to encourage reading, or create e-texts as a replacement for costly and heavy printed texts, to secure backlisted fiction, and to maintain curriculum-focussed non-fiction and multiple copies with manageable digital rights and licensing for class use. In this workshop, participants will examine the “wicked problems” and change focus to find solutions.
