BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Dawson Books and Semantico, a provider of online publishing services and technology, have agreed to a major program of updates to dawsonera, a publishing platform that allows libraries to build tailored collections of ebooks. The platform, which launched in 2007, now provides more than 170,000 ebooks to more than 450 publishers.

The updates will enable faster load times and a "read online" capability designed to provide more flexibility than PDFs. The site will also be redesigned to include social networking features through which users can share information, lists, and searches.
