Abstract

This paper outlines the methodology and results of the EBONI Project's evaluation of portable electronic books, in which staff from UK academia were provided with a selection of ebook readers and asked to report back on their experiences. A set of issues of importance to users of electronic books is uncovered, and compared with concerns arising from other experiments in the same field. Finally, recommendations for successful ebook design are made
