Wishlish dari seorang perpustakawan untuk penerbit Ebook

Oleh John Dupois, dari York University, Toronto.

This is what an scitech ebook can be, a good source of information on a topic. Up to date, reviewing the literature, covering a topic comprehensively at multiple skill and knowledge levels, annotatable, sharable, copy and paste-able, blogable, citable, authoritative yet responsive and mashupable. We need to reimagine the scholarly monograph in the scitech fields, to find a business model that works, that rewards creators and meets the needs of readers. If it's something I'm going to pay for it needs to be better and easier to use than the free web, although I'm not sure I yet understand how I would evaluate that. Certainly, there has to be a compelling reason that students and researchers would use it rather than the free web, and I'm not sure what the range of those compelling reasons is yet either.

Dan 9 poin lagi didalam blog beliau. Menarik untuk diperhatikan bagi penerbit Ebook. Ini terutamanya soal model, harga, dan isi kandungan.

Saya sendiri selalu membayangkan Ebook itu sama seperti buku yang saya baca dalam edisi cetak. Pendapat beliau ini menarik, dan menimbulkan soalan "dimana status pengarang asal" jika bukunya sudah menjadi mashable?
