The growth of digital books in the broader market has slowed, but e-books
have become a significant portion of the popular book market. The
availability of packages of scholarly e-monographs and of e-book
collections for the library market continues to increase as publishers
become more comfortable with offering e-books to libraries. During this
virtual conference, speakers will address marketplace developments
surrounding electronic books and how such developments might impact
availability of digital materials for readers, students, faculty, and other
users. In addition to business trends, the interconnected issues of content
forms, platforms, and devices for accessing e-books will also be covered.

The conference is divided into three useful segments. Initially, attendees
will hear presentations on the user experience and the revealing behavioral
data that illustrates user expectations and needs. Following that segment,
presenters will examine the nuts-and-bolts practices that shape what users
may experience (content presentation, metadata, and business requirements).
The day closes with two case studies and the signature feature of NISO
events, a round-table discussion that serves attendees as a critical radar
in detecting emerging trends and issues that may soon demand greater
