Short Session Description (one line): How are your students using ebooks? Join us to hear the passionate, enthusiastic, and frustrated answers to questions like this one, plus the process that we used to survey our students.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like): Where do students at your institution find their e-book content (is your library on that list)? What kinds of devices do they use to read ebooks? Do you know the issues they might be having?
