E(empty) Book(shelf)?

Albahiya, Ilaf, Lucy Moosa, Yuki Suzuki, and Christy Thomas

The purpose of this investigation was to obtain the views of faculty and students at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry (UDMSOD) on the future of e-book technology as it applied to e-teaching and e-learning. A similar study was conducted at the Louisiana State University to get the opinion about student experiences with e-books.  Their results indicated a substantial level of interest in the use of e-books and their ability to search specific topics. As e-books become more prevalent, more user-friendly, and less expensive, should we consider adopting this evolving technology for our faculty and students?
