Three years ago, major publishers refused to sell ebooks to libraries, no one knew how to download an ebook file, and public library staff were hit with an unforeseen surge of patron interest in ebooks. Now that the dust has settled and ebook market has matured, where are we now? In panel presentation format, speakers, including Andrew Albanese from Publishers Weekly will describe how things have changed and what libraries can expect in the not so distant future. A representative from the Book Industry Study Group will present the findings of the latest study on ebooks and patron behavior.
