The Strategic Priority Committee on Resource Sharing of the Boston Library Consortium presents a symposium on the future of interlibrary loan in the developing e-book environment:
"Will there be Interlibrary Loan in a world of EBOOKS? A Symposium organized by the Strategic Priority Committee on Resource Sharing"
May 24, 2011 at Brandeis University
This video contains Part I of the program.
The discussion was moderated by Tom Sanville, Director of Licensing and Special Projects for Lyrasis. Tom also introduced the issues from his perspective. Panelists from JSTOR, Springer USA, Oxford University Press and the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC) participated.
The Triangle Research Library Network drew on the notes from the BLC Symposium as background for its Mellon-funded E-Books Summit in August, 2011, and the issues discussed at the Symposium have also become points of reference and discussion at BLC meetings.
