|Title:||E-texts and E-Books: misconceptions and missed opportunities|
|Citation:||Emerging Paradigms for Academic Library E-Book Acquisition and Use: Trends, Challenges and Opportunities. Hong Kong, 3 June, 2008.|
|Abstract:||The commonly used term 'e-book' for electronic texts is a misnomer that leads some to believe that an electronic text is the equivalent to a codex. This paper will argue that the two are vastly different, that the medium is in fact very much the message and the human interaction with a screen is very different from human interaction with a codex. The codex itself was an improvement on the scroll and the electronic text may be taking us back to the scroll rather than forward to a better medium.|
