    As more libraries increase their e-book holdings by purchasing subject collections and installing patron demand systems, new methods of acquiring and organizing content must be considered. As libraries struggle to control costs and manage their growing e-book collections, issues such as duplication of content in both electronic and print forms and reliable metadata become increasingly important. Our panel will discuss the dichotomy of selecting and organizing e-book content in a fast and growing landscape of digitized titles, and how vendors and publishers are offering more content and levels of service while keeping up with standards in an ever-changing environment.
