Target Audience: All law librarians
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to assess and compare several features of e-book readers, such as the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPhone.
2. Participants will be able to explain potential uses and limitations of current e-book technology in law libraries and to anticipate changes in the technology.

E-books for devices such as the Amazon Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPhone are a small but growing segment of the total market for books. As time passes, more law students, lawyers, and other law library patrons will likely be reading some books - including law books - on e-book readers. What should law librarians know about these technologies? In what ways might legal publishers tailor books and other content for e-readers? Should law libraries start to acquire e-book readers and e-books, or wait for further developments? The presentations and a follow-up audience discussion will address these questions and related issues.
