Changing eBooks Providers, Made Easy

Presented by: Baker & Taylor & Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Wednesday, November 8th, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT

Libraries have the freedom to pick and choose their digital content providers. However, digital migration can be an arduous undertaking, and if done improperly, it can lead to disorganization and service interruptions. Join this webcast to learn practical steps for changing eBook providers from a panel of librarians who have successfully transitioned or are in the process of moving collections to a new digital content service provider.

Peer institutions will share their lessons learned and best practices for digital migrations–things to consider when making a decision to switch, exercising your library’s rights to previously licensed content, effective communications strategies and proactive steps that help ensure your digital readers and library staff are guided through the change while minimizing disruptions.

  • Michael Ayres – Library Technical Services Manager, Irving Public Library System
  • Susan Reynolds – Digital and Technical Services Manager, Marion County Public Library System, Ocala, FL
  • Michael Bills – Director of Sales and Marketing, Digital Products, Baker & Taylor

Moderator
