I’ll be presenting an online session titled “Can Your Library Provide the Electronic Content That People Want and Need?” this Wednesday at the “PLA Virtual Spring Symposium“. Hope “see” some of you there! Here’s a description of my session (with even more quotation marks! :) ):

“When it comes to content and libraries, people want what they want; when they want it; in the format they want. But services like Netflix, iTunes, Hulu, and Amazon offer electronic content much more effectively than libraries. As larger consumption patterns shift more and more away from physical formats (print, CD, DVD), to electronic formats, and as libraries struggle financially, how can we possibly offer access in competitive ways? In this session we’ll look at the electronic content access environment we inhabit and the directions we are headed. We’ll then look to our competition, our history, and our institutional missions for ways libraries can take solid, practical action to remain relevant in the rapidly impending world where electronic content accounts for the most of library’s “circulation”.”
