10 Big Deal Library Issues of 2014

Number 10I love this time of year, when our online publishing friends take a shot at what they deem as a big deal in the past year. In the ongoing flood of information, I find it enormously helpful to have someone else take stock, and flag important items and developments. A lot happens in one year!

In a list of 10 items furnished by Publishers Weekly (PW), it is not surprising that eBooks has a firm hold, and it is helpful to review the progress that has been made in that arena.

Which item am I most excited about? I am particularly energized and hopeful about the role of libraries in the self-publishing community (item 8). What about you, which of the listed items renews your hope and gets you excited?

Review the PW list of ten here!
