e-Books with Lexis: Wednesday April 11th

Scott Meiser, Director, Product Planning at Lexis will discuss the challenges e-Books present to both publishers and librarians. We all 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?”
