ALA, E-Books and You by ALA President, Maureen Sullivan

A new 3.5 minute video containing a “special message” from ALA President Maureen Sullivan provides an update on where the “organization stands” regarding ebooks and digital content in libraries.

Selected Highlights from the Video:

“We have established ALA as an important player in addressing the various changes in the digital content ecosystem.”

“We will continue to provide leadership in this arena but we invite you to join us.”
