Hot Topics: E-Books and E-Readers Explained

Wed., April 20, 2011, 1:30 – 3:00 pm ET

With the plethora of e-books and e-devices now available, where do you start when helping users in Ask a Librarian? Knowing the basics of what’s out there and how it ties users to our libraries gives you a better understanding of the growing demand in digital reading material, and helps you help patrons. How do we help our readers use the readers they have now? What do they (or we) need to get started? And what’s the difference between a Kindle and a Nook, anyway?

Let Chad Mairn of St. Petersburg College and Al Carlson of Tampa Bay Library Consortium help you forge a path through the jungle of acronyms for formats and DRM’s, e-books and e-readers. They don’t have all the answers, but they will provide back-to-basics help and a foundation for building your own growing understanding of e-books & e-readers in this informative webinar.

Be there or be square!
