Follow the journey of an ebook file from publisher to library reader, as Rose Donohoo (OverDrive) and Maria Cipriano (Toronto Public Library), in conversation with Teresa Elsey (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), survey the ebook lending landscape. As the ebook and its metadata travel from publisher to OverDrive ingestion and validation to library purchase and curation, we’ll address issues of discoverability, usability, lending models, and access to content, as well as the differences between library lending and retail. We’ll take a deep dive into what’s required to get ebooks into the hands of library customers (it’s harder than you would think!), and what ebook publishers and developers can do to help.
