The continued growth of ebooks in both academic and enterprise markets is all but certain. Regardless of the market, however, ebooks fail at one critical activity: conducting research. Much of this has to do with the fact that many ebooks are the digital equivalent of their printed predecessors. The format is oriented to a process or technology, not the user needs.

Both students and professionals primarily look for three criteria in a research tool: access to as much validated information on a topic as possible and from anywhere, intuitive search capabilities and the ability to manipulate content. Ebooks fail to meet the last two of these three criteria due to problems that arise when presenting a book in a digital format.

The excerpt is actually from the beginning of the book, it highlights how much of the confusion over today's copyright law might be because people have been confused over what definition of "copy" we're using.

Here’s your chance to ask everything you always wanted to know about e-readers and get a response from a large body of experts. So please send in your questions and comments, and if you have enough expertise to be a guest “panelist”, please volunteer.

You can provide input or ask questions by tweeting with both of these hashtags: #CILDC #A302 or message @cmairn on Twitter. You can also use the comments section on this post on our Facebook page.
