E-Books and the User: In the Library, on the Desktop and on the Device

Books for scholars and students are now usually made available in digital form but are no longer only to be downloaded from a web site within the higher and further education institutions. Publishers and librarians are taking note of the wishes of their patrons to access the book content on their laptops and on other reading devices. A panel composing a publisher, a librarian and an academic user has been put together to explain what they are doing, what they want and where the future lies.

Moderator

Anthony Watkinson, Senior Lecturer, Department of Information Studies, University College London
