Libraries nationwide are exploring options for acquiring and delivering digital content that leverage the power of libraries, deliver good user experiences, and are consistent with library values. It’s clear that libraries need to take a leading role in developing access to digital content at every step in the life cycle, from creation to acquisition to delivery and display. The IMLS-funded Library E-content Access Project (LEAP) is a national multi-library project working to solve these problems. This session will continue ongoing conversations around this work with grant partners and stakeholders, with focus on solidifying our group's mission and values.
