How are library card holders discovering books? How long are patrons willing to wait in line for a book—and what other actions do they take when a book is unavailable? Do libraries drive book sales? Why should cross-media (TV/movie and game) discovery matter to librarians? These and many other questions drive the Immersive Media & Books 2020 report, which highlights the role of libraries in book discovery and cross-media engagement. In this session, Drs. Rachel Noorda and Kathi Inman Berens, authors of the Immersive Media & Books 2020 report, talk about the major findings relevant to libraries.
