UKSG One-Day Conference

This year's conference is entitled E-books for today and tomorrow: what is the role of the 'long form' in teaching, learning and research?

Textbooks, monographs, reports, handbooks, collected essays, novels, poetry collections – many formats of ‘long-form’ material continue to flourish and evolve. Why does printed text continue to be so popular? Now that they are more established, how are e-versions fitting into this picture? This event will examine the status of the e-book in the academic context, and review the latest analysis and developments in relation to teaching, learning and research.

Confirmed speakers for the conference include: Geoffrey Crossick, from the University of London; Donald Waters (Mellon Foundation), Eelco Ferwerda (OAPEN Foundation) and Chris Banks (Imperial College London) giving perspectives on the sustainability of new (e-)book publishing models.
