Carroll, Alexander J.; Corlett-Rivera, Kelsey; Hackman, Timothy; Zou, Jinwang
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v16 n1 p131-162 Jan 2016
This article describes the results of a survey that gathered data on perceptions and use of e-books from undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and staff. The investigators analyzed the results based on user affiliate status and subject discipline and compared the results with the findings of a similar, smaller-scale study conducted in 2012. The study concludes with a discussion of the major findings and their implications for academic libraries and publishers, as well as areas for further inquiry.
