    We had a great turnout at the ASGCLA Consortial Ebooks Interest Group meeting at ALA Midwinter!  Thanks to all who contributed to the conversation and shared their ideas on our work together.

    We invite everyone in the community to share updates on their ebook projects.  So far, we have two updates to share.  Please send yours along to sspohnjr@gmail.com if you have news to share and we'll get it posted for you!

    We'd also like to take this opportunity to help connect you to major efforts in this space including:

    While participation in this group is open to everyone, we do encourage people to be members of the ASGCLA division. ASGCLA connects library leaders among state libraries, government libraries, consortia and underserved communities. It is a small but mighty division of amazing people. Learn more at https://www.asgcladirect.org/

    Admittedly, we are more active on our listserv.  We encourage you to subscribe to our list to keep up with ebook news and activities!
