Impact of e-books in university students' learning process
MetadataShow full item record
Is reading just reading? What do we mean when we talk about “reading” an electronic book? Is this perhaps depending on the situation? Is it different when we are reading for leisure or reading for learning? For information gathering or emotions? Reading longer or shorter texts? What impact does the device we read on have, from books to screens to reading tablets? What is reading for learning as compared to reading for other purposes? These are major questions that I will not touch. Instead, I will be looking closely at one small issue: How can the emergence of e-books impact the university students learning process, and how can the university library help our students use this source of information in the most efficient way?
