Giving Our Users a Voice: Faculty and Students Talk About Their Perceptions and Use of Library E-books

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!


Users have the Amazon/Apple advertised perception of e-books: easy to use, easy to download, access anywhere. Our students and faculty bring this perception into our libraries, but the academic e-book reality is different: tethered models, download limits, non-intuitive interfaces, access limitations.

This session will provide insights into our users’ experiences with e-books. Hear a panel of students and faculty discuss their perceptions and experiences using e-books from their academic libraries: how they discover library e-books, how they use (or want to use) e-books, if they encourage the library to purchase e-books, if given the option of paper or e-book - under what circumstances is one format preferred over another, what they like most about using e-books, what they wish were better and what changes they would recommend A moderator will encourage audience participation and time will be allotted for questions of the panel.
