I. Welcome II. Discussion: Foreign-language ebooks in the academic library. Attendees participated in one of four breakout small group discussions.

(Discussion at each table was wide-ranging and did not always stick to the topic assigned. So there is valuable information in all the notes about all the topics!)

  • Foreign-language ebooks in multidisciplinary ebook collections (facilitator: Kathleen Kasten; notes: Maira Bundza)
  • Ebooks and the user experience (facilitator: Diana Brooking; notes: Walter Schechter)
  • Foreign-language ebook issues from the vendor perspective (facilitator: Andrea Ferro; notes: Sarah How)
  • Evaluating European Studies ebook packages (facilitator: Heidi Madden; notes: Lana Soglasnova)
