Summary Report from DPLAfest Ebook Workshop

By Rachel Frick, April 29, 2015.

Through generous funding of the Alfred P. Sloan foundation, the Digital Public Library of America convened a two-day working meeting comprised of a diverse group of stakeholders to understand the current ecosystem for ebooks and to unbundle pieces of this ecosystem to address the challenges ebooks present for libraries. Thanks to all those who came to Indianapolis and contributed to the conversation.

A summary report of the topics discussed is located here.

We are working on detailed notes and follow up activities, with the goal of having next steps organized by late May.
