This is a time of great change in the publishing world. Four of the "big six" won't sell eBooks to libraries at all, and two have unsustainable models. So, Douglas County Libraries set off in their own direction to discover ways to purchase content that their patrons desire, while encouraging publishers to work with libraries. They have signed contracts with over a dozen publishers, and are working with many more. Learn more about the way they took control of their eContent, and provided new ways to discover and utilize this collection.

Learning objectives:
Techniques libraries can use to negotiate with vendors in the age of eBooks
Ways in which libraries can take greater control of their collections
Exploring eBook content management and collection development

Featured takeaways:
Tools to market your eContent to your patrons
A model for patron-driven acquisition
Ways to approach eContent collection in the age of Amazon and iBooks
