Ebooks: Assessing Usage Reading Research Reference and Engagement

  1. 1. Ebooks assessing usage: reading, research and reference usage and engagement
  2. 2. Or, Why I hate, and love, Jaron Lanier
  3. 3. Or, why we need an open platform for (scholarly) reading
  4. 4. I am: Hugh McGuire | @hughmcguire | hugh@rebus.foundation Rebus Foundation: https://rebus.foundation Pressbooks: https://pressbooks.com LibriVox: https://librivox.org
  5. 5. “The platforms are terrible. The user interface is bad. You get into a system, you have to click five or six times to get into it… [Once] you get into the system, even if you have a wide-screen monitor… the viewing of the content itself is limited to half the screen… It looks like it’s from the 90s. There’s limitations on printing, if you can print at all. The annotation is either non-existent or terrible, and it’s not hierarchical or smart in any way, and getting those annotations back out (because they have locked it down, because [publishers] view it… as a workaround to get the content out…) is near impossible and not functional. So you feel like you’re sort of looking at this thing through a digital glass box that you can’t touch or interact with.”
  6. 6. “We cannot have a society in which if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it’s financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them.” -- Jaron Lanier
