Learning Objectives

The future is here.  Law libraries are already providing eBooks to patrons on a daily basis.  In fall 2014, the St. Mary's University School of Law's law library conducted a survey on U.S. law libraries' current use of  eBooks, defined to include treatises in databases, online access codes and CDs that come with print books, open access materials including online government documents, as well as eBooks platforms like Overdrive and Thompson Reuters' Proview.  This session will present results of the study, with a focus on what has worked to provide access to each type of eBook, in differently resourced libraries.
