Textbooks and the time capsule of the CSLA 2015 Centennial Celebration

If you're a library person at a school site, you're probably dealing with textbooks right about now. And wondering, how soon will we get e-textbooks? Not soon enough! My district, Fresno Unified, is going to pilot a few e-textbooks this coming year. I hope it goes really well and they decide to jump in with both feet.

One of the features of our CSLA 2015 Centennial Celebration Conference, Feb. 5 - 8, 2015, at SFO Hyatt, is a time capsule. We're going to solicit written contributions as well as suggestions for realia. We're going to ask you to write about what changes you've seen in the school library over the years of your career. I hope one of those changes will be in textbooks. Maybe we can put a textbook in our time capsule, and in another hundred years when they open it up, they'll say, "How quaint. Paper textbooks."
