  3. Leveraging e-Content for Libraries and Patrons

    April 9, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    Sponsored by- iSchool @ UW-Madison Libraries have long recognized the potential of e-content to be so much more than just an alternative to print. Multiple people can use one file and it doesn’t have to live in just one place on a shelf. Links are just a faster cross-reference mechanism. No one can see what you’re reading and you don’t have to get out of your jammies to get it. And, while copyright’s end and fair use’s beginning is still hotly debated, the developing options for delivering, finding, and accessing e-content are both promising and growing. Join iSchool alumni Andi Coffin and Sara Gold from WiLS for a discussion on the ways we are seeing e-content mature, including through community engagement initiatives provided by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium and the challenges and successes trending in the world of e-content publishing.
