How is your library navigating the transition from print to digital resources? Have you found success in locating, organizing and managing digital resources? What innovative strategies are you using to help users’ access digital resources and successfully use them? What emerging digital resource trends is your library experimenting with?

Now in its third year, the 2013 Print to Digital (P2D) Workshop continues its emphasis on the ongoing transition from print to digital collections, looking at how libraries are effectively navigating the process. Geared toward academic, public, school and special librarians, this year’s event seeks to help participants identify emerging trends and gain a greater understanding of how to manage and access digital resources.

We invite your proposals on topics ranging from collection development issues to digital rights management to determining the cost/benefit of implementing new digital services to educating users on accessing and using digital materials. Consider sharing your experiences with others and submitting a program proposal!
