PROGRAM ABSTRACTS & LOGIN INFORMATION:
October 5 (7:45-9 am)
Give Them What They Want? Patron Driven Acquisitions for eBooks (LYRASIS)

Patron driven acquisitions for eBooks is not a new concept but interest in it is growing thanks to broader adoption of eBooks in libraries and patron expectations, driven in part by consumer experience. Just what are the rewards and risks of the patron driven approach, and are there best practices? In this session, we will provide an overview of concepts and issues from the librarian, patron, and vendor viewpoints and hear actual case studies from librarians who are planning or have implemented successful (and unsuccessful) patron driven programs. Timothy Cherubini, LYRASIS' Program Director for East Region Services and Shared eBook Collections Librarian leads the discussion with contributions from several librarians from the field.

Breaking New Bread: Cookbooks in the Library (Booklist)

>From celebrity-chef cookbooks to the burgeoning interest in organic and sustainable foods, things are heating up in the cookery section of today's libraries. In this hour-long webinar moderated by Adult Books editor Brad Hooper, Booklist columnist and readers' advisory librarian Kaite Mediatore Stover and Booklist's cookery reviewer, Mark Knoblauch, discuss trends in cookbook publishing and the important place of the cookery collection in public library services. They will also be joined by Michael Friedberg, Marketing Manager, John Wiley & Sons; Katrina Kruse, Marketing Manager, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; and Amy Greeman, Publicity Director, Storey Publishing; who will share their latest and most enticing cookbook titles.

October 5 (1:30-3:30 pm)
Beyond MARC Records: Patron Discovery of eBooks (LYRASIS)

What is the most common advice to librarians who are adding eBooks to their collections and want to know how their patrons will find them? Add MARC records to your catalog. Although a wise step, is it enough? Increasingly, discussions of discovery suggest a focus on being where the patrons are, not relying on directing patrons to library catalogs or web pages. With eBooks, the issue is exacerbated as the concept of a "book" and its authority in an online world are challenged. Samual Klein, Wikimedia Foundation Trustee and Director of Outreach for One Laptop Per Child; Mike Sweet, Credo Reference CEO, and librariens discuss the issue in a panel moderated by LYRASIS' Timothy Cherubini.
