Join Me: LJ's eBook Summit

Don’t miss the upcoming LJ eBook Summit: eBooks The New Normal on Wednesday, October 12. It promises to be a full day of intriguing ideas that you won’t want to miss. I’m looking forward to my panel:

The Ebook Evolution: How They’ll Change Public Libraries
As ebooks catch fire with public library patrons librarians are poised to solve the problems of how to satisfy demand today, but they also need to gaze into the future to see how the rapid shift toward a more ubiquitous e-environment will transform the library itself. In this forward-thinking session, panelists will identify where libraries will be impacted such as space planning and marketing and they’ll dream about what the library can become in the best-case scenario.

We’ve got some great speakers that you won’t want to miss:

Nate Hill: talking about service models

Eli Neiburger: talking about the value proposition via experience

Monique Sendze: talking about digital content

Myself: talking about the impact on marketing and space design

I know from the pre-work my panel has done that this will be a not-to-miss event. Sign up today!
