The Nov/Dec 2011 issue of Library Technology Reports covers the topic of e-books -- from the ALA TechSource website:

There's no question that the role e-books and e-readers in libraries is increasing rapidly. For this issue of Library Technology Reports, Sue Polanka has compiled an expert-authored series of articles that provide librarians with strategies, best practices and case studies for meeting the unprecendented legal, technological, and vendor challeges that come with e-book purchasing.

Topics Include:

  *   Consortial Purchasing of E-books by Susan Hinken and Emily J. McElroy
  *   Academic Library Dilemmas in Purchasing Content for E-readers by Eleanor I. Cook
  *   Open Access E-books by E. S. Hellman
  *   The E-textbook Revolution by William D. Chesser
  *   Digital Textbooks by Stephen R. Acker
  *   Textbooks, Open Educational Resources, and the Role of the Library by Greg Raschke and Shelby Shanks

You can view the entire report via the Gale databases by going to Academic OneFile, clicking on "Publication Search" in the orange bar, entering Library Technology Reports, and selecting the Nov/Dec 2011 issue.
