Frankenbooks - Understanding the eBook Opportunity
Do ebooks change everything or are they just the same as print? Not by a long shot. What are the opportunities and what enhancements might we expect? Is this the final straw for libraries or the biggest opportunity since the web? Framing the ebook opportunity is one of the bigger challenges facing libraries of all types today. What is the future of the directory or reference book? Whither encyclopedia? What about textbooks? Is fiction different than non-fiction? What do we do about devices, apps, and more?
