If the trend in reading is for more of it to be digital and less of it to be print, that will likely be true for library reading as well. The focus of publishers so far has been to try to manage the impact of library ebook distribution on digital book sales through retailers, but publishers might need to consider another question: will their print sales to libraries be diminishing, when, and by how much? Increased demand for ebooks and increased availability of titles means that libraries are devoting more of their limited budgets to digital books. This panel will discuss how ebook buying is being integrated into library collection development and what they see happening to acquisitions of trade books in print.
