If you're a school librarian tasked with building an e-book collection, it can be hard to know where to start. In this new workshop, school librarian and technology expert Buffy J. Hamilton will guide you through the process of selecting the right e-book platform for your library’s needs. Beginning with a survey of the current marketplace for e-book platforms, Hamilton will disentangle the process of figuring out what works best for your situation and your budget.


Topics include: 
Key features of major e-book providers in the K12 market 
Free and open-source portals for digital content
Considerations for licensing/terms of use
Accessibility for readers who may be visually challenged
How decisions by major publishers to participate in the e-book market may influence your platform options

90 minutes of interactive learning for only $55!
