Where is e-book development going?

McMaster is part of OCUL (Ontario Council of University Libraries), a consortium which has licensed e-book software from ebrary. Over the next several years, OCUL will be developing an integrated e-book "platform" on Scholars Portal which will provide, among other things:

  • a single interface ("look and feel") for e-books from multiple publishers (including purchased and subscription e-books)
  • print-on-demand e-books

e-book standards and technologies are still evolving. Stay tuned!
