I manage a statewide e-book platform called eRead Illinois with over 400 participating libraries (ereadillinois.com). I am co-chair of the ASCLA consortial e-book interest group. My organization is a partner on the DPLA national e-book platform investigation, and I convened a panel for BEA 2015 with a representative from Harper Collins, ebook vendors (traditional and nontraditional) , the director of library service at Boston Public library and myself on the challenges of libraries and library consortia delivering ebooks.
