Restriction-free ebooks offer the freedom to let patrons access content on their own terms. And now that publishers are making digital rights management (DRM)-free titles available through aggregators, a plethora of questions have arisen. For example: Do users engage with DRM-free titles differently that their DRM-restricted counterparts? And, how important is usage when libraries consider purchasing DRM-free content?
Kick off your ALA experience with a provocative discussion on:
- Preliminary findings from our usage study (the results might surprise you!)
- Highlights from a recent poll revealing answers to your pressing questions about the value of DRM-Free ebooks
- Ebook Central enhancements that ensure your patrons always have the clearest path to ebook content, regardless of whether titles are fully DRM-free
