Notes from Julie Blake, OhioLINK

Join us for a preconference session that we hope will be a candid and frank discussion of e-books presented by librarians who are currently using the various e-book programs chronicling their experiences.   In the audience will be representatives from the major e-book vendors who will be there to field questions and comment. We want to encourage and expect the sort of spirited dialogue for which Charleston is known and that good information will result.
