E-volving, E-xciting. E-vanish?

Carolyne Cohn, Chris von Hinckledey.

Many changes have happened in the bookselling arena in the last five years at the same time as changes are happening in libraries too. We will discuss issues we have seen and that we believe will be of importance in the coming years. These will include budgets, publishing trends, wider service offerings, ebooks and continually evolving market needs.
