The Connecticut State Library is moving forward with its plan for a statewide E-Book platform in partnership with the New York Public Library and others. Electronic Resources Coordinator Eric Hansen will furnish an update on all progress to date and how it will affect content and services of the State Library. He will demonstrate the service from the SimplyE app and will describe the current state of the LEAP project for a library marketplace, where partner libraries will be able to purchase eBooks from vendors and publishers at reduced cost. He will discuss possible implications of the service and the marketplace for libraries and their eBook operations.
