Change in the publishing world: Four of the “big six” won’t sell ebooks to libraries at all, and two have unsustainable models. So, Douglas County Libraries set off in their own direction to discover ways to purchase content that their patrons desire while encouraging publishers to work with libraries. They have signed contracts with more than a dozen publishers and are working with many more. Learn more about the way they took control of their econtent, and provided new ways to discover and utilize this collection. Learn techniques to negotiate with vendors, explore ebook content management and collection development, and gather tools to market your econtent to your community.
