Eli Neiburger: Library Futures and how to get there

For a different take on eBooks and public libraries we suggest you listen to Eli Neiburger, Associate Director of IT & Production at the Ann Arbor District Library (AADL) in Michigan.  Eli  recently presented at the State Library of New South Wales where he suggested that eBooks are not a transformative media format and that distribution models which mimic the print paradigm are not necessarily the way forward.   Eli outlines how Ann Arbour District Library has pursued alternative licensing models for digital content and developed a host of new and engaging services for their community.
