S024 - To CKB or not to CKB? Evaluating ebook catalog records versus knowledge base records
Managing ebooks is complicated.  In this presentation, we look at how one library used an ILS migration to examine how we catalog ebooks.  By looking at both quality of catalog records, and other elements of ebook management, we developed criteria to use going forward with ebook cataloging and management.

S043-01 - Comparing use and usability of ebooks with near-at-hand pbooks
This research asks college seniors, who have had several years of exposure to EBSCO academic ebooks, to do several brief tasks using those ebooks: searching for and identifying passages or chapters and saving them for later use.  The researchers will observe the student behavior and follow up with qualitative questions.

S052 - What We Said About Ebooks: Librarians and the Discourse of Technological Change
The technological change embodied by ebooks in libraries seems to have happened in the wink of an eye, but it has a long and complex history. A discourse analysis of publications produced before, during, and after the adoption of ebooks, reveals how our attitudes have shaped our ebook services.

This session will explore how inconsistencies across academic ebook platforms impact the user experience. The presenters will share results from usability tests that examined the same ebook on multiple platforms to gage user expectations and identify preferences.
