Digital Content and Smart Librarians

My ability to make strong arguments about how our academic libraries should navigate the new ecosystem of digital books (e-books & audiobooks) seems to be inversely related to the amount of time I spend engaging the library community on these issues. The more I learn, the more complex and difficult I realize this issue to be. Simple declarations about the desirability of our libraries mimicking Amazon and providing every book in paper, e-paper and audio (when available …. audiobooks are unfortunately less likely to be produced) might be appealing, but may ultimately be unproductive.
