Don’t Fear the eBook

Don’t Fear the eBook
A public services perspective

Presented by the Computer and Technical Services Division of SCLA

You can’t escape from them, can’t avoid them and can’t run from them. Library systems have started adopting and adapting to this new digital marketplace.

Support and service may be easier than you think.
Come join us as we talk about how libraries are teaching patrons and distributing this technology and how we might be using it in the future.

The program will describe the basic barriers that patrons and staff face connecting patrons to our eBook collection. Presenters will also talk about their success in distributing eBook readers to their patrons and their experiences.
