What Do We Do with the Books?

As the e-revolution rolls on, and Kindles and tablets begin to rule the world, how are librarians to deal with the material we already have? This talk discusses some of the questions we are discussing in Oakland, and suggests some concepts that may be useful, as technology becomes even more ubiquitous. These important issues include: How "new" does the collection have to be? How do we decide what to purchase? Who is our clientele, if the younger generation is using e-readers? How do we reach them? What is our teaching role? How do we market ourselves?

Presented by Fred Isaac at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
