When over half of your users come to the library seeking information, it is often your responsibility to ensure they find what they’re looking for. But when you’re taking on varying challenges like: providing content that spans all patrons’ needs and interests, building renovations, awareness and understanding about authoritative non-fiction content, and the changing digital landscape, how do you embrace non-fiction eBooks?

Join us and Gale, a Cengage Company, as we hear from four public library thought-leaders as they speak to how their libraries address non-fiction collection challenges by embracing Gale eBooks on GVRL…like a boss.
