Google+ Social = World Domination?
by Avi Rappoport

Ebook Developments Were HOT at ALA
by Paula J. Hane

Of course, along with that come all the issues and considerations involved: copyright/DRM, rising costs of digital collections, format issues, and the rapidly evolving publishing market. For librarians, it's all about providing enhanced services through the emerging technologies. They had a lot to look at and think about in New Orleans.
