Tuesday matinee - We're in the eBook Business: Douglas County Libraries' Adventures with eContent and ePublishing

530

Published on

Putting power in the hands of the people has always been at the forefront of the minds in Douglas County Libraries. Now, we're taking things to the next level. Creating in-browser eBook readers, enabling social networking through apps on Facebook, and using an Adobe Content Server to encode digital rights management and circulate titles. We've implemented a recommendation engine in our catalog, launched a mobile app that integrates with OverDrive, and installed digital touchscreen power walls in all of our branches. We've investigated freemium business models, crowd-sourcing and OPDS, embraced VuFind with its eBook integration and discovery features, and become a lending library for the Internet Archive. These projects and more will be discussed, along with the challenges and rewards each of them has brought.
