E-BOOK SURVEY - win amazon vouchers

Participate in the national ebook survey and enter a draw for Amazon vouchers!

JISC, the agency that oversees use of ICT to support education and research in UK academic community, is funding a major study into the use of e-books in UK universities. As part of that study, JISC has purchased 36 e-books in business and management, engineering, media studies and medicine which will be available until July 2009. Details of these e-books have been loaded into the Library catalogue and subject lists are also available. You will need to have an athens username and password to access them.

To benchmark user attitudes towards e-books, there is now a survey running to gather student and staff attitudes to this resource format. The survey is entirely web-based, confidential and quick to complete. If you want to be entered into the draw, you are asked to give your university email address at the end of the survey, but this will not be linked to your response.

To participate in the survey, please go to one of the following web pages:



The survey will close at midnight on Friday 15th February 2008.
