Availability is only part of e-book growth story

“A new white paper published by Springer has revealed a significant increase in e-book pages viewed and a decrease in pages printed. The white paper draws on past studies and a new survey of users at Wellesley College, MA, USA to uncover insights for undergraduate librarians and institutions. The results revealed that 73 per cent of faculty and 70 per cent of students reported having used an e-book. What’s more, compared with the 2007 Wellesley-usage data, the number of unique titles that were accessed jumped by 40 per cent.”( via Research Information)
