Presented at Computers in Libraries 2011 Conference by Chad Mairn, Librarian @ St. Petersburg College and Al Carlson, System Administrator @ the Tampa Bay Library Consortium.
New examples of digital reading material—ebooks, emagazines, enewpapers—are appearing every day. So are devices and software to read them. But is epublishing a growing trend or a passing fad? Is it a valuable tool or a solution in search of a problem? Speakers explore the jungle of acronyms for formats and DRMs, the many types of readers, and more. They don't have all the answers, but they will provide sensible planning guidelines and opportunities to make a difference for your patrons.
