Circling Back: Which Digital Content Types Should Be on Your Library’s Radar?

Taking a look at trends in digital content and access

From comic books to NFTs, new digital content types proliferate quickly in and beyond the library space. Academic libraries need to stay abreast of these developments, but doing so requires know-how, effort, and resources. Additionally, libraries must consider how concerns about DEI accessibility manifest in new digital content types.

To that end, we want to revisit a webinar Choice held last month, reviewing its 2022 survey on the state of ebooks and examining trends in new content types. If you’re interested in digital collections and accessibility, this talk is well worth the listen.
