Leveraging e-book content for research and learning continues to rise due to its sheer convenience. Researchers are continually looking to access content quickly and easily, and across various devices. They also want the ability to consume it in a way that best suits their needs, which could entail downloading a chapter or sometimes an entire book. However, some content is not easily accessible and comes with certain restrictions like DRM-protections which impose limits on the number of pages that can be saved. The result? Severe frustration and valuable time lost. This is where offering DRM-free e-books can help.
Please join EBSCO to hear about the advantages of DRM-free e-books and how EBSCO’s improvements to the e-book user experience are leading to better outcomes across a variety of e-book use cases.

You will learn about:

  • How the user experience is improved – streamlined access, user autonomy, and greater accessibility 
  • User research and data-driven design decisions, including student perceptions of using e-books for research and reading
  • Publisher targeting, outreach and content
