E-books aren't going to make print obsolete anytime soon | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it

For all the talk about print books being replaced by digital books, the vast majority of readers in the U.S. still consume books the old-fashioned way.

Annemarijs's insight:

Aan de hand van cijfers over het gebruik van eBooks wordt geconcludeerd dat deze voorlopig nog niet de gedrukte boeken zullen vervangen. Slechts 5% van de Amerikanen die lezen, leest uitsluitend eBooks.

Ebook Platforms in Libraries: A new report in the works

November 2nd, 2012 · by Mirela Roncevic · 2 Comments

I am in the midst of developing a library technology report for ALA TechSource (a unit of the publishing department of the American Library Association), due out in the Spring of 2013. The focus: ebook platforms in libraries. As I am amassing information about various products from publishers and aggregators on the specifics of each platform, I’ve decided to open it up to a broader audience in the early stages of the writing process and obtain feedback from all who may benefit.

Publishers and aggregators: Please take a moment to read the proposed contents of the report (below) and let me know where your products fit and why. I plan to cover a variety of resources.

Librarians: What are your main frustrations when selecting ebook platforms? Please take a moment to consider if the details I plan to include about each product will help you make informed purchasing decisions.
