Recorded in an undisclosed location, this episode focuses entirely on books. Hauser begins reviews with a nonfiction YA selection about the manhunt for Lincoln’s Killer. Mauser shares the literary goodness of Terry Pratchett’s latest offering. Finally, McElroy delights us with the beautifully done picture book about having friends and still doing your own thing.
The tech discussion focuses on the frustrations and successes of implementing e-books in the library. We highlight the different types of e-books available in our libraries, ways to use and promote them, suggestions for working around the difficulties, and the value of analytics in e-book collection development.
We’d love to hear from listeners about using e-books in the library–what have you found that works well, and what have you learned through the process?
