With ebrary’s newly launched mobile app, researchers and students now have optimized online access to authoritative e-books and content uploaded with DASH!™ (Data Sharing, Fast), the ability to add their own personal research, and through the app, users can sign-in to ebrary using their Facebook user name and password.
Based on research from ebrary’s 2011 Global Student E-book Survey, 60% of students said downloading e-books onto their mobile devices is “very important,” which is a 16% increase over results from a similar survey ebrary sponsored in 2008. Additionally, ebrary ran a Download Survey with librarians to gauge the importance and accessibility of downloading content. Results showed that the majority of librarians marked the iPad as the most important device in accessing e-books offline, above laptops and desktops.
This presentation will explore the ways in which ebrary is constantly addressing and expanding its models and product services to support the continually growing research and technology landscape for both end-users and librarians.
