Last day to RSVP for eLending event

ALLA members are invited to hear CCH's Alicia Cohen sharing with us on  

 Is eLending really here?

Despite the high penetration of digital devices in Australia, demand for physical publications by libraries has remained stable. A perceived lack of demand for eLending has put it on the back shelf, but new and innovative technologies are responding to the future needs of our busy lawyers and business professionals.

Over the last three years the team at Wolters Kluwer, CCH has been collaborating with the law librarian community to develop an eLending solution that allows professional libraries to easily offer their users loanable eBooks. This project has developed significantly over the years and now the CCH ePlatform offers a device-agnostic and publisher-aggregated space for all libraries.
Promoting research and access to information is a central mission for libraries and also for CCH. eBooks and eLending are another step closer to achieving this.
Come along to learn more about eLending.

The Speaker:
Alicia Cohen has extensive experience in the Australian and UK publishing industry. With a postgraduate degree in publishing and a passion for all things digital, Alicia currently works as the Head of Content - Books for Wolters Kluwer, CCH. Alicia’s strong interest in books and new technology lands her in frequent and enthusiastic discussions about the changing landscape of the industry.
