What About eBook Readers?

#cildc #a302
  • Chad Mairn, Chief Technology Officer, Novare Library Services
  • doing a usability study on eReaders wrt text books
  • open forum / audience discussion
  • question about what % of budget allocated to ebook format...should it be part of "fiction"...does the content matter?
  • also b/c ebooks aren't "bought" (w OD) it's more like a subscription, more like a database than a format...or are they "bought" w Advantage?
  • need to be mindful that not ALL patrons have eBook readers
  • someone mentioned we were having these conversations when audiobooks came out!
