April episode of AL Live tackles the present and future of ebooks

Mark your calendars. April 18th episode of American Libraries Live will focus on the present and future of ebooks and what their continued popularity means for libraries and librarians everywhere. The interactive (and free) discussion will be moderated by No Shelf Required blogger and ebook expert Sue Polanka and will include contributions from:

• Jamie LaRue, Director of the Douglas County (CO) Libraries and an innovator in making e-books available to patrons.

• Scott Wasinger, Vice President of Sales for eBooks and Audiobooks at EBSCO Publishing, who has been involved with eContent since the early days of commercial e-readers.

The episode will take place on April 18th between 2 and 3 p.m. (Eastern). More information is available here: http://americanlibrarieslive.org/blog/month-al-live-present-and-future-e-books. If you’re unable to attend live, this event will be recorded and available at www.americanlibrarieslive.org shortly after it concludes.
