L’ambasciata americana di Roma per il suo spring event parlerà di un tema di assoluto interesse: il futuro della lettura
2011 will be a milestone year for the Italian book market. Publishers, bookstores, and libraries are exploring the impact of ebooks on readers’ behavior. Business models, reading habits and library services are all going to be dramatically influenced by the new e-reading devices just introduced into the Italian market.
The Spring Event 2011 will explore the implications of these new technologies for libraries and librarians. At BookNext: the future of reading, you are invited to explore the ways that library and information services need to evolve and revolutionize the way they bring and share knowledge with the communities they serve.
Speakers will include Christopher Platt, Director of Collections of the New York Public Library; Professor Gino Roncaglia of Universita’ della Tuscia; Sara Batts, President of SLA-Europe; Jacob Lewis, founder of Figment, an online community for teens and young-adults to create, discover, and share new reading and writing; Antonella De Robbio, librarian and expert of digital copyrights, Universita’ degli Studi di Padova; Antonio Tombolini, CEO of Simplicissimus Book Farm; Giulio Blasi, head of MediaLibraryOnline; Marco Calvo, director of LiberLiber; and Eli Neiburger, expert on gaming and associate director for IT & production at the Ann Arbor District Library.
Registrazione gratuita ma obbligatoria. E per chi non può andare a Roma niente paura, l’evento verrà trasmesso in streaming.
