Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries
If you have a particular interest in e-books, come along to the free UKeiG session at 10:00 on Monday 6th March in the e-Content Pavillion at the London Book Fair and get a taster for the regular one-day workshops on e-books that the Group holds. This year we have 'Developing and Managing e-Book Collections' meetings in Newcastle (11th April) and in Dublin (12th September). The London Book Fair session - Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries - is presented by Chris Armstrong and Ray Lonsdale and aimed at both publishers and library/information professionals. The session, which is based upon research and training which they have been conducting with the profession over the last 10 years, will introduce a series of key issues facing librarians as they establish and promote e-book collections.
The London Book Fair runs from Sunday 5th March to Tuesday 7th March at ExCel London. Further details are available from http://www.lbf-virtual.com. UKeiG will be found on stand S100 near the e-Content Pavillion. 'Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries' is at 10:00 on Monday 6th March, in the eContent Pavillion.
