The eBook market rapidly evolves, and all types of libraries must continuously adapt to the changes. This session will provide an understanding of the differences among business models used by academic, public and K-12 libraries. Participants will leave the webinar with a greater understanding of library eBook stakeholders, restrictions on eBook use and access for libraries, and new eBook models that potentially address library concerns.
