Description

In Fall 2012, the University of Arizona Libraries launched an eTextbook pilot project with the Courseload eReading platform in a 300-level accounting class. Students received a free copy of the professor's annotated eText, subsidized by the library. We’ll share lessons the library learned about student perceptions of eTexts, faculty involvement, licensing terms and costs, eReading platforms, functionality, printing limits, assessment, accessibility, and campus politics.
