I just returned from The Charleston Conference and was amazed by the sessions and general discussions relating to eBooks. I tried to get to most of them, but that was impossible due to the amount of sessions. If you attended or presented one of these sessions, I invite you to post your comments to No Shelf Required. I know we can all benefit from hearing more about ebooks.
Some highlights for me were Lindsey Schell’s discussion of patron driven purchasing at UT-Austin – a “platform agnostic” library, and the “banana” story told by Jason Price. I was also humbled by the number of people that attended my session – the debate between patron driven purchasing and traditional collection development. Thanks to all of you for attending, and for participating. We used the audience response systems to survey the attendees, so I’ll post those results on NSR.
