The last presentation of the day was from David Fay, Director of Academic E-Books at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The Academic E-Books site offers the full text of scholarly e-book series and individual titles that are not available free of charge. Beyond offering the full text, the e-books are linked to the full text of the print edition. As an added bonus, faculty can get a discounted e-book if their print edition is purchased through UNCG's online portal. David gave a brief overview of the process, including how UNCG is trying to develop new contracts with publishers, and the planned rollout of new features, like the ability to cite sources in e-books.
I ended the day with a discussion panel featuring David Fay and Mary Claggett, University Librarian, University of Maryland-College Park. Mary and David discussed the future of academic e-books with the audience. The panelists explored the positives and negatives of e-books, how they compare to print books, and the transition from print to e-books. They also talked about how university libraries need to adapt their services to provide e-books as well as print books.
Readers of the book may find it helpful if they are invited to participate in an online discussion after reading the book. Readers can provide their own input about what they liked about the book, what they found confusing or problematic, as well as what they found useful and/or interesting.
