Terrified by terms of use? Lost in license terms? Fear no more, as Louisiana Librarians describe their experiences in the land of licensing for e-books. Each librarian will discuss their e-book collection development policies and purchasing requirements. They will also describe the trials and tribulations of license terminology and negotiations. The pros and cons of various e-book vendors will be compared and contrasted. They will highlight the unique workflow elements for adding titles and ensuring the findability of these e-books. In this illuminating panel, audience members will gain the knowledge necessary to tackle e-book licensing and access in their home libraries with confidence.

What is Learning with LOUIS?

Learning with LOUIS (LwL) is a teaching, learning, and sharing video series. Webinars are offered monthly (with a few exceptions), and most often feature presentations from our consortium members, partnering vendors, and other invited guests. The topics range from current library technology and systems, electronic resources, new library services and trends, and more.

The video series has been expanded to now include a video tutorial library! We are currently working to develop the tutorials and will publish them as they become available.

LOUIS wants to ensure that its members, at all levels, remain connected to each other. The best way to do so is to share our experiences, learn from each other, and grow together.
