  • MEGAN SAYS: Today we are going talk to you about how to integrate eReaders into your collection. Let me first begin by saying that there is a tremendous amount of information in this presentation. But feel free to kick back and just listen since everything we’re discussing today is easily accessible online. Our project at Sacramento Public Library, where Amy & I work, was born out of frustration with our library eBook model. We’re all well aware of the DRM conundrum that libraries are in, so Amy & I aren’t gonna get too deep into that. But I will say that our library was looking for a model that gave us ownership over our eBooks, that meant, buying devices and eBooks from an eBook retailer rather than software from library vendor which basically gave us no ownership over the eBooks. Although that may be changing thanks to Kansas Public Library. Anyhow, our project was funded by a federal grant called the Library Services & Technology Act grant which was awarded to us by the California State Library. We were generously awarded $100k in addition to some extra funding we received from our Friends group and our Foundation. The grant stipulated that we make all of our documents and our assessment results available to act as a guide to other libraries looking to emulate our model. So we documented EVERYTHING and have put it all online. Today, Amy & I will be taking what we learned from that process and giving you advice on how to implement a project like ours on a fairly large scale.Okay let’s get started!
