Two Major Take Aways:

1. Ebooks are not books.

2. They can be anything we want them to be.

Ed Walters of FastCase told us that librarians and vendors can work together to make ebooks that meet user needs and do not hew to outdated book-based metaphors.  Jason Wilson of Jones McClure reminded us of the scope of the challenge ahead and the sheer number of choices we have to make in designing the electronic legal information environment.  Jean O’Grady of DLA Piper, and Scott Meiser of LexisNexis helped us understand where we are now with ebooks and where we might go.

Please keep reading CRIV Blog for a continuation of this extremely important conversation.
