I would like to remind the readers of LISNews of a conference that the Open eBook Forum is hosting on March 16th in New York called the eBooks in the Public Library Conference. Details of the conference can be found at www.openebook.org/library2004.
I believe that this conference will be a real eyeopener for publishers, technology companies and libraries on how eBooks can be integrated into library systems, what patrons want, how eBooks can be used, what they cost, problems, challenges and opportunities of eBooks etc.
We've got a really good mix registered to the conference of large, medium and small library systems, eBook technology companies, traditional library system companies like Dynix and Sirsi and distributors like netLibrary and Baker & Taylor.
It's shaping up to be a good show and I hope people who read LISNews will attend. A couple of details, the conference is in NYC at March 16th and tickets are $79 (this includes breakfast and lunch). The conference is very intimate (350 people capacity) which will be great for networking, asking questions etc., but there are less than 100 tickets left, so I suggest signing up soon if you want to attend.
