Ebook Library (EBL) and James Bennett Textbook Discussion Panel
Monday, January 31st, 2011
Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre- Parkside G05
Time: 15:00 – 17:00 *

EBL and James Bennett are hosting a panel with publishers and librarians to discuss e-textbooks.  The aim of this panel and discussion is to identify and catalogue what each group wants, the concerns/challenges, and what the desired results are with textbooks in ebook format.  The purpose for doing so is so that we may gather a task force together to outline a model for an e- textbook pilot in 2011 and roll it out in various libraries with the collaboration of various publishers.  The panel will set out to identify specific deliverables regarding what each group wants to get out of the pilot about usage, student behaviour, effect on print sales, and any other implications.   Participating publishers include: Allen & Unwin, Wiley Australia, Cengage and more.  Save the date and send your RSVPs to by January 14th.
