LJ/SLJ's First Virtual Summit on Ebooks Draws Over 2100 Attendees

Library Journal: "Library Journal and School Library Journal's inaugural virtual summit, Ebooks: Libraries at the Tipping Point, confirmed both librarians' frustration over their exclusion from decisions being made regarding ebooks and their willingness to embrace ebook delivery and access for their users. The event's high attendance figures and degree of audience engagement also made clear that librarians are willing, able, and eager to participate in digital conferences of this kind: over 2500 registrants and 2100 attendees stayed on for an average of five hours, participating in panels and visiting virtual exhibitor booths for demos and chats."
