E-Books for Academe: A Study from Gettysburg College

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Abstract

This ECAR research bulletin analyzes the potential impact of electronic books (e-books) on higher education. It draws evidence from a series of small qualitative studies and focus groups with faculty and students undertaken at Gettysburg College between the fall of 2008 and the summer of 2009. These studies cover a representative selection of currently available e-book formats: the Kindle, the e-Reader, the iPhone, the netbook, and coursesmart.com.
