Collections in Transition: E-Books and Collection Development

As collections move from the print to the electronic world, libraries must change their collection development practices and policies to reflect new opportunities and challenges.  In this session you will learn how libraries are transforming their collection development practices and policies to address the proliferation of electronic books, including acquisitions based on patron demand. In addition, learn about creating, managing and selling e-books from the publisher’s perspective, information that will give librarians valuable insight into e-books from press to desktop.
