Why Books are No Longer Our Business

Yesterday, a news release from Amazon about Kindle books outselling hardback books made the rounds on kanlib-l, along with some reaction articles and posts.  That sparked an interesting conversation here in the Tech Office about how exactly eBooks will impact public libraries…and whether libraries should even try to compete.

I definitely have a lot to think about and look forward to participating in the Library Journal eBook summit September 29.

Brenda is going to sign us up for group access, so we can log into the virtual summit upstairs, invite folks from NEKLS to join us and have a hybrid virtual/face-to-face workshop.

Liz also shared this great Shelfcheck comic about this issue – thanks Kathryn for the tweet!
