Learning Objectives

understand how undergraduates and faculty experience ebooks, and which factors may influence the acceptance of ebooks.


Libraries are committing increasingly larger portions of their budgets to ebooks.  Librarians have had little real data about the academic use of ebooks when making these decisions.
