eBooks with Lexis

eBooks present challenges to both publishers and librarians. We both need to contend with multiple file formats and multiple readers. There appears to be almost a direct ratio between the number of readers and the number of issues libraries need to address. These include: How do libraries lend eBooks? Do we let people download a title or just lend them a reader with titles pre-loaded? Does the library own the title or is it licensed? What is a fair price? How do we measure “circulation?”

Scott Meiser, Director, Product Planning at LexisNexis will discuss these issues and what Lexis is doing to meet the needs of individuals and of libraries in this dynamic marketplace.
