(Oct 13/09) I find it difficult to read textbooks online. Causes headaches & eye strain. Also frustrating when ovid continually boots you out. Would like more hard copies or texts. Thank you!

Library response:

Thank you for providing us with this useful feedback.  We have been purchasing and subscribing to ebooks for a number of years, but in the past couple of years we have greatly expanded this collection.  We have received feedback from students that they prefer to have some books in print format.  As you mentioned, the online environment is not great when reading for long periods of time.

We are not able to duplicate the format for every title we have available online ( ie purchase both print and online) . However, if you have a list of titles that you would like us to maintain in print format, please forward the list to me and I would be happy to investigate this further.

Kind regards,

Andrea mclell@mcmaster.ca
