Embracing eBooks - Open Lab

Embracing eBooks will feature plenty of opportunity for hands-on experience with eReaders!

The Ohio Library Council Audiovisual and Technology Division is bringing its "Gadget Gallery," and representatives from Barnes and Noble will have several versions of Nook on hand. And with open lab times during registration, lunch, and all of the breakout sessions, you are sure to have a chance to try your hand at any number of eReaders.

Some of the equipment featured includes:

  • Apple iPad4
  • Apple iPad Mini
  • Google Nexus 7
  • Microsoft Surface
  • Kindle Fire HD
  • Kindle Paperwhite
  • Nook HD+
  • Nook Simple Touch GlowLight

Here's a full list of what you can expect to see.

And there will also be plenty of help on hand to guide your explorations. The OLC's AV and IT Division members and other volunteers will be there for you as you need them.

The equipment being demonstrated in the "Gadget Gallery" was purchased through a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
