Chris Harris on eBooks and School Libraries

Found via today’s American Libraries enewsletter is Chris Harris’ pragmatic essay on the possibilities and unresolved barriers to widespread eBook adoption in school libraries.

It’s a good essay to have in mind when you have conversations about administrators who hold an overly-rosy view that everything can be digitized, though tomorrow’s big announcement from Apple — will it be digital textbooks and/or a Garage Band-like tool that makes eBook production easy for everyone and/or something else — could change things in the coming months!
