Professional development helps librarians transitioning to digital content

Castle Rock, CO -- On September 27, 2013, District Library Media Programming hosted a professional development session for its librarians to learn more about the effective utilization and integration of e-Books into school library collections. National and local research finds students equally split between a preference for print and electronic formats and that, within this split, there are student format preferences that are linked to specific genres. In order to meet the diverse format preferences of the students they serve, librarians across the Douglas County School District attended this session to learn more about eBook best practices and its links to the cirriculum support missions of thier libraries.
