Digital Book World: Where do libraries and ebooks meet?

LA Times – “Is there a place for ebooks in libraries? To start things off Wednesday at the Digital Book World panel “The eBook Ecosystem: Where Do Libraries Fit?,” moderator Josh Hadro of Library Journal referenced an ebook feasibility study for public libraries. It included quotes from librarians and library administrators, including “I worry that we don’t have a seat at the table,” and “the boat left without us.” But this panel, like so many at the conference being held in New York City this week, wanted to stay positive. The panelists were Christopher Platt of the New York Public Library, Ruth Liebmann of Random House, George Coe from the book distributor Baker and Taylor and Steve Potash from Overdrive, a software company that provides ebooks to vendors and libraries, including the Los Angeles Public Library.
