eBooks becoming more streamlined

Talk in a recent report indicates that eBooks may be more accessible in the future. The variation of formats for readers and eBooks has hindered the growth of the eBook option on college campuses. A recent report suggests that companies are working together to straighten out the differences and make eBooks a more viable option for colleges.

Do you offer or require eBooks for your courses? What barriers have you experienced? Are you hoping for this technology to become more common at UNF?

Note that UNF subscribes to SkillSoft through MyWings (bottom right-hand corner when you log in). This service provides access to a number of eBooks as well as access to technical skill training (all free to students and faculty).
