The theme of this year’s annual ABQLA conference was “Mobility: Making Connections @ your Library.” A plethora of excellent presentations were given, and among them was Maria Savova’s talk entitled “McGill Library Makes E-books Portable: E-readers’ Place Amongst Library Materials, Technology and Service.” Maria is a Collection Development and Special Projects Librarian at McGill University, as well as the coordinator of the E-Readers Loan Service. This is complementary to the work she has also done on the implementation of the downloadable electronic content service from OverDrive, along with the WorldCat Local Discovery Tool at McGill.
