ReadersFirst Guide to Library E-Book Vendors and more, ALA Masters session

In an ALA Masters Series session, members of ReadersFirst--a movement to improve e-book access and services for public library users--will introduce the organization and talk about the tool they’ve developed to help libraries evaluate ebook vendors, the ReadersFirst Guide to Library E-Book Vendors. Members of the ReadersFirst Working Group including Michael Santangelo, Electronic Resources Coordinator for BookOps--Library Services Center (Shared Technical Services of the Brooklyn Public Library and the New York Public Library) and Michael Blackwell, Manager, Dublin Branch, Columbus Metropolitan Library, will discuss the process of how the guide was built, how the criteria were created, and how vendors are scored according to these criteria. They will also address future plans for the ReadersFirst movement. This ALA Masters session takes place Sunday, January 26, 11:45-12:30pm.
The ALA Masters Series is a Midwinter Meeting chance to hear and talk to experts from across library specialties as they describe their latest in-house innovations in fast-paced sessions (to which attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch). These sessions offer insights into the hottest trends and how librarians are stepping up to them.
