Northern Ohio Technical Services Librarians is pleased to present a program on issues associated with e-books. Whether one is selecting, purchasing, cataloging, or providing access to these materials, they present issues different from their print counterparts. Our keynote speaker, Sue Polanka, author of No Shelf Required: E-Books in Libraries will discuss opportuntities and challenges associated with e-books, including eBook formats, access to and use of eBook content, eBook readers, digital textbooks, and future directions for eBooks. Nicole Merriman of the State Library of Ohio will join us through distance technology and share information about the Ohio E-Book Project. The afternoon will conclude with Jeff Trimble of Youngstown State University discussing the technical services aspects of managing OhioLINK’s e-book collection. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
