|Please join Jim Trojanowski, Jeff Gilderson-Duwe, and Sara Gold for a 90 minute webinar about Wisconsin’s digital media buying pool at 10:00 am on Thursday, May 3, 2012.
We’ll briefly discuss why and how the buying pool was created, why we believe it makes sense for Wisconsin’s public libraries, what we’ve learned in the few months since it started, and how materials are selected for the collection.
Once our brief (15-30 minute) presentation is complete, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
