The Opportunities in Abundance – watch if you are interested in e-books

Books in Browsers conference have posted a bunch of the presentations on YouTube.  Find them on the O’Reilly Media YouTube channel here.  The speaker is Brian O’Leary (Magellan Media Partners) this was the finale of the conference.

This is very interesting for me, currently doing some mulling and decision making procrastination about what I’m going to do in my library about e-readers, provide the books (bring your own technology model) or provide technology and and the books. And if I decide to provide the hardware which one would I choose.  As the owner of three e-reading devices myself I’m still undecided which will work better for our students.

Anyway if you are interested in the business of e-books, e-publishing and the issues with royalties and how ultimately we might end up with a best of all worlds situation in our libraries, it might be worth your while watching this video.  A view from outside the library sector.

This came to me via the Book Council FB page

    Thanks for the kind mention – I think there is a good deal of relevance for libraries and how to move ahead in otherwise difficult times. I appreciate your watching.
