The Bookseller is of course covering the London Book Fair, and yesterday they reported on a seminar about ebooks and libraries:
Students are dissatisfied with the lack of an interactive experience in academic e-books, Cranfield University librarian Hazel Woodward told delegates at LBF seminar "Digital Challenges Facing Libraries" this morning.
According to the JISC National E-book Observatory Project, which took in 120 UK academic libraries, students want e-books to enhance the learning experience rather than simply reproduce the text. "That is not being delivered at the moment. E-books need to be more user-centric in design," Woodward said.
