Bonsai (Portola Hotel)
Stephen Abram, Principal, Lighthouse Consulting Inc. & & Executive Director, Federation of Ontario Public Libraries (FOPL)
The upcoming years will pose extreme challenges for school librarians managing digital resources. “E” is not going to replace “P,” and we are in a very long period of hybrid format strategies in our libraries, challenged by a plethora of vendor and publisher licenses, pricing models,and technology landscapes, plus varying degrees of student/faculty readiness. Stephen, drawing on his background in print and e-publishing, vendor-land and librarianship, will frame the challenges and present the strategies that are most likely to progress in the near term and make an educated guess as to what will the future holds.
