10:00am CDT

S001 - Why doesn’t everyone love reading e-books?
When asked about their preferred reading device most students say they prefer a print book. Is it because screens are inferior for reading and learning? Or is it merely a question of habit and attitude? During this presentation I will address these questions based on current research.

S004 - Reveal your library's collections: understanding linked data for academic libraries
Many users turn to search engines first, yet often miss their own library’s collections – because today search engines generally stop at the library home page, hours and events. Panelists will discuss how we can reveal academic library collections by transforming MARC records into Linked Data for the Web to consume.
