NISO Forum: The E-Book Renaissance: Exploring the Possibilities Exposed by Digital Books

October 24-25, 2011
Baltimore, Maryland
Tremont Plaza Hotel

 

About the Forum

E-books have existed in the library landscape for over a decade, but it is only in the last few years that their use has shifted to finally become the game-changer that all have anticipated for so long. Availability, distribution, licensing, discoverability, current and future access, and usage of e-books all require content providers and libraries to change many of their existing processes and develop new ways to do business. Amidst this confusion is a wealth of opportunities for new collaborations and initiatives.

The NISO Forum, The E-Book Renaissance: Exploring the Possibilities Exposed by Digital Books will probe the key issues surrounding e-books from a variety of industry, library, scholarly, and consumer viewpoints. Participate in the community discussion for advancing e-book development, distribution, and use.
