The supplement to American Libraries Jan/Feb 2012, v. 43, n.1/2, focuses on EBooks, entitled, EBooks Making New Connections.
One of a series of DVDs from College of DuPage, Library futures: Staying Ahead of the Curve: Technology Trends in Libraries: Tools, Skills, Staffing and Training, offers various views on technology, the library, and the future. Other titles in the series can be searched for by using the series title, Library Futures: Staying Ahead of the Curve.
