Series Wrap Up — Academic E-books – The Shifting Landscape

In Academic Ebooks – The Shifting Landscape Leslie Lees VP of Content Development for ebrary discussed changes that are occurring with e-books and implications for libraries and their users.

 

Now that the series Academic E-books – The Shifting Landscape is complete,   I want to express my appreciation to Leslie Lees for surfacing the many transformations that are taking place on the e-book landscape and what they are likely to mean for libraries, publishers and the academic community as a whole.  I look forward to seeing continued dialog about how libraries and information providers can build new and better capabilities that will add value for users.    

Following are links to all of the posts in this series:
