Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the third of three inter-related experiments investigating the use and usability of e-books in Higher Education based on experiments conducted at the University of Strathclyde. This study has looked in greater detail at user interactions with e-books for reference purposes by focusing on searching and browsing tasks using three search tools: back-of the-book index (BoBI), table of contents (ToC) and full text search (FTS).
