  • 1.  Ebooks Friday is ON

    Posted Jan 24, 2023 02:50 PM

    Hi all,


    "Ebook Friday" is scheduled for June 22nd, 2023, at ALA Annual in Chicago.


    We'll certainly have a session for the Ebooks Interest Group.


    If people also want to have a Consortial Ebooks Interest meeting, we'll schedule that too.


    These will talk about recent developments, licensing issues, general concerns


    We may have a DPLA Ebooks Lightning Round, highlighting news and trends.


    If you were choosing, what might you like a discussion session on?  Controlled Digital Lending? State Ebook Bills/Laws? A Vendor Invite to talk about what's new and answer questions?


    Please let us know (on list) so we can start planning and inviting!


    No word yet about a location/room number.  We'll try to have a Zoom session if ALA offers virtual attendance.


    Hope to see you there!
