E-books project – your chance to take part!

Lisa K Flint3 February 2009

Jisc e-booksThe JISC national e-books observatory project currently provides staff and students with free access to a collection of electronic books via the MyiLibrary platform.  A full list of the books included in the project can be found at:http://www.jiscebooksproject.org/wp-content/full-list-of-e-books-oct-2007b.doc (medical titles are listed on last page). The aim of the project is to find out more about usage, promotion and purchasing of e-books in academic libraries. For more information on the project go to http://www.jiscebooksproject.org/ 

Staff and students are invited to take part in a focus group about the electronic books provided as part of this project. Participating students from around 14 institutions (including UCL) will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 6 prizes of £100. If you are a student or member of staff at UCL and would be interested in taking part in these focus groups please contact Kate Cheney (k.cheney@ucl.ac.uk) or leave a comment below including your email address.
