Abstract

Electronic journals have become well established in their various formats in university libraries while electronic books are still struggling to find their place. The notion that “ebooks are a solution in search of a problem” still has some currency as libraries negotiate the various licensing and access issues associated with e-books. This paper will explore the theoretical and practical issues of implementing e-books in the tertiary education environment. Experiences at Bond University where the School of IT and the Library are collaborating to experiment with e-book solutions for IT students will be used to illustrate progress.
