First Friday in the Library: Ebooks

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 (Around 2 years ago)

Faculty are invited to drop by on March 2nd between 1:30 and 3:30 for refreshments and conversation in the Gustavus Library Associates Reading Room (just past the reference desk on the main floor). The topic for this First Friday is Ebooks: what do you think of them? What impact might digital books have on teaching and learning? What are the implications for future scholarship? Will the future for books be open or pay per view? Will we have a future for books where sharing is disabled and privacy is not an option? Or does the digital shift offer new opportunities? Join us if you can for leisurely conversation and refreshments. Questions? Contact Julie Gilbert or Barbara Fister.
