Members' and Librarians' Days

Engaging with ebooks in the classroom, in your library, at home and on the move

 

We are very grateful to Browns Books for Students for providing us with a venue for this exciting event.  Split into three sessions, delegates will hear from a VLe subscriber who will talk about their experience of using ebooks and be provided with a checklist of factors to consider when buying an ebook platform.  Representatives from Bounce Marketing, Macmillan Children’s Books, Oxford Children’s Books, Raintree and Walker Books will update attendees with their plans for digital publishing and details of forthcoming titles.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and network throughout the day. 

The very full morning programme will be followed by lunch.

During the afternoon attendees will have the opportunity to browse and buy in Browns’ fabulous showroom.  A special discount of 25% will be applied to orders for books placed on the day.
