Flipped learning has been around for awhile. It's a rethinking of the standard classroom model that puts students in the driver's seat. With the influx of technology into education, the flipped classroom model has really taken off.
With the increased availability of books in electronic format and libraries’ move from the just-in-case to the just-in-time delivery model and from a storage facility to a collaboration center, it’s no wonder academic libraries have been shifting toward purchasing eBooks over paper copies.
Like the transition from print to electronic serials, this transition comes with its own difficulties, especially for academic libraries. Being aware of the issues is one thing, but academic librarians need to find ways to ensure that the needs of the academic researcher do not get lost in the currently consumer-focused marketplace.
