Ebook Merchandising”

Date & Time: February 5th, 2014. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM.

Description:

- Are you launching a new ebook service and looking for ways to get started on the right foot?

- Do you want your existing ebook collection to have the same vibrancy and staff support as your print collection?

- Frustrated by the different levels of ebook usage and knowledge among your Library users?

- Looking for ways to recommend ebook titles to users who aren’t in the Library building?

Ebooks are increasingly in demand, and libraries may experience a gap between their users needs and their ebook services. A combination of marketing, tech support, and readers’ advisory can fill this gap.

Though ebooks can present a new set of challenges for libraries, many ebook services can be merchandised using tools that library staff are already familiar with, making it easier for libraries to provide the human element so crucial to recommending books.

This webinar will help you develop a more comprehensive plan for ebook merchandising in your library and online, allowing you to better serve your current ebook readers, as well as reach out to a new group of users.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

- Be able to understand the three facets of ebook merchandising: merchandising the service, merchandising the support, and merchandising the titles.

- Be able to identify at least one strategy for improving ebook merchandising for each facet in their library.

- Know strategies for introducing technology to new e-reading public.

- Know the differences in marketing requirements and capabilities from different ebook providers.

This webinar will be of interest to public library frontline staff, collection development and readers’ advisory administrators.

Presenter: Stephanie Anderson.

“Street Lit and Libraries”

Date & Time: February 12th, 2014. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM.

Description: For the last 15 years, public and high school libraries have been exploring the under-reviewed and small press produced genre of street lit.

With increasing amounts of professional discussions now available on the strengths and challenges street lit collections can offer your library’s users, it’s time to look at the appeal that holds for readers.

Street lit is not without its controversies. Learning why and how some libraries have decided to include it in their collections will help your library decide whether it’s feasible and appropriate for your community. Knowing how your community may react to its inclusion in your library will increase your value as the community’s readers’ advisor and/or fiction collection developer.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

- Be able to identify the current hallmarks of street lit as a genre.

- Recognize the dynamic nature of reader context as individuals make reading choices, and the role mainstream publishing plays in reading options.

- Be familiar with street lit’s potential controversies that may arise locally and know how to discuss them with readers and potential readers.

- Be able to locate critical and collection resources pertaining to the inclusion of street lit in the library’s collection.

- Be able to connect street lit titles in the collection to works in other genres and formats.

This webinar will be of interest to collection development and readers' advisory staff in public and high school libraries.
