I. Welcome

II. Discussion: Foreign-language ebooks in the academic library

  • We will break up into four groups for roundtable discussions about foreign-language ebooks in academic libraries. The roundtable discussions are small, informal group discussions intended to give participants the opportunity to network, discuss best practices, and share information. The topics are:
    • Foreign-language ebooks in multidisciplinary ebook collections
    • Ebooks and the user experience
    • Foreign-language ebook issues from the vendor perspective
    • Evaluating European Studies ebook packages
  • Each topic roundtable will have a facilitator and a note taker.
