Midwest Chapter Tech Forum Ideas

The group met on April 3rd, 2012 to discuss possible topics for the tech forum. After discussing getting buy-in for new technologies from IT and library app development, the group settled on E-Book licensing as our topic of choice.

We would like to have 2-3 speakers discuss the different aspects of licensing eBooks.  We'd like to have a presenter who has worked with a large institution's contracts, preferably with multiple vendors.  We'd also like to have a presenter who has worked with eBook licensing from the perspective of a smaller library.

We'd like to see each speaker get 20-30 minutes with 30 minutes at the end for questions.

The group is deciding on potential speakers and will be contacting them soon.


Respectfully submitted,
Max Anderson
