Collections: A Key Asset1:30 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.
Collections are a critical asset of libraries and are in continually changing formats. Join the discussion around e-resources vs. print, multimedia, open access, intellectual property, self-publishing, repositories, curating, pricing and financing, and more. A longtime champion for ebooks in libraries, de Castell talks about the ebook journey and her visions for the future. She looks at what has been accomplished; what we’re seeing now; emphasizes the need to focus in the future, for instance, on self-published ebooks: balancing access and a healthy creative industry, and re-establishing our role as curators and trusted sources for recommendations. And, of course, easy technology.
