Straight to the Source: A Student Panel on Ebook Usage

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In 2008, we started tracking ebook usage trends via a global student survey designed to help us better understand how students use their library's resources. We ran the survey again in 2011 and most recently in 2016, receiving over 15,150 total responses. Now, armed with the survey findings and a panel of students ready to talk about their experience with ebooks, we're ready to discuss the trends we found in our data and what they mean for your library,

During this panel discussion, we'll not only share our survey results but talk straight with the source - the undergraduate and graduate students who come to you for research guidance - about their own experiences with ebooks and how that compares with our findings. Your questions will be answered, your assumptions will be confirmed - or disproved - and you'll leave with actionable insight that will guide your ebook acquisition strategy and the services you offer your users.
