eBooks: a New Paradigm in Douglas County, or a New Twist on the Past?

SPONSORED BY: Library Journal
EVENT DATE AND TIME: Tuesday, June 12, 2012, 3:00-4:00 PM EST/12:00 -1:00 PM PST
 
The staff at the Douglas County Libraries in Colorado have been implementing for the past year an innovative ebook lending model that gives the library actual ownership of the ebook file, rather than leasing access to it via a third party. The library has its own content server and after striking deals with various publishers it loads the files onto the server and applies the requisite DRM before lending. The library is providing a concrete example of how in the digital age libraries remain reliable stewards of intellectual content. In this webinar, Jamie LaRue, the library’s director, Monique Sendze, the IT director, and Lisa Long Hickman, the sales and marketing manager for Dzanc Books, will discuss the model.
