The University Library adds around 30,000 ebooks to its 350,000 existing ebooks each year, and spends most of it's funds allocated for new resources on ebooks and other digital resources.
Students like and use ebooks for their learning and research, as do many academic staff in their teaching and research. They report that they particularly like ebooks for their immediacy and convenience.
We have made these two short videos to explore some of the issues around the move to ebooks, and the advantages of using them. The first video explores ebooks from the library perspective, the second from the perspective of academic staff.
Watch the videos here.
We'd love to hear what you think about using ebooks, and any comments you may have about these two videos.
