I was hoping for what the title says: something about use and management of ebooks. This volume is something entirely different.

I must give No Shelf Required 2: Use and Management of Electronic Books, 5 stars!!!!

Well, I guess I'm a bit biased but I was fortunate to be included with many excellent scholars in this book.

Read my Chapter 16: Using E-Books with Reluctuant Readers!

Happy Reading!

Very good overview of issues relating to ebooks in many types of libraries, though more information on legal implications and licensing issues would have been appreciated.

Again, excellent scholarship. This book goes further into the realm of eBooks and deals with issues that real librarians are facing in the digital collections world. A very useful resource.

Thought provoking, even the chapters I didn't think would apply to me. Some is more applicable to public/academic libraries than school. ...more
