Infrastructure first!: E-books and academic libraries in Sweden
2011 (English)In: Serials, ISSN 0953-0460, Vol. 24, no 1, 38-42 p.Article in journal (Other academic) Published
E-books are weird beings. Though at a first glance their similarity to the codex book makes them look like natural inhabitants of the library OPAC, the similarity to the codex is deceiving. E-books are a different kind of being, sometimes equally different from the codex as from the electronic journal articles that have been part of the academic mainstream since the mid 1990s. E-books might require new strategies and new ways of thinking. Since usage is increasing fast, it is important to share and discuss experiences regarding e-books. This article provides a description of the handling of e-books and e-content in general as regards the Swedish BIBSAM consortia and LIBRIS national union catalogue.
