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.

203 B
Description :

“Ideas + Community = Energy” is the motto for Lisa Bunker’s Catalyst Café at the Pima County Public Library where she is Social Media Librarian. In this ALA Masters session, Bunker will show you how the Café lives up to its motto and how despite being run on a shoestring, it has been a catalyst for new partnerships and projects at the library. She will describe how the Café has built capacity for the library’s newest project, a library-style incubator for small business, nonprofits, freelancers and artists. Entrepreneurship and co-working centers have already been established in a growing number of libraries nationwide, and this overview will provide inspiration and strategies for libraries not yet on board.
