This year I’m president of the Colorado Public Library Association (CoPLA), and we have an event called the eMedia Smackdown designed to bring members together in Colorado like never before to discuss one of the hottest topics in libraryland – eBooks and other eMedia!
The opportunities and challenges of digital materials continue to loom large over libraries. While we’ve been mostly reactive to changes, the time has come to “smackdown” eMedia (eBooks, eReaders, video and audio) and become proactive in molding the future of library content to benefit patrons everywhere.
This event is designed to spur dialog among participants to create understanding of the issues and identify strategies they can can use in their own libraries.
Five speakers will frame the most compelling eContent topics today, and excellent facilitators will help guide the discussion in five locations throughout Colorado for a compelling, fun-filled day!
