eBook Focus Groups: thanks and future

A big thanks to all who participated in our recent eBook focus groups: everyone earned their Freddy Frogs and vouchers. We got some really useful feedback which we will forward to the relevant eBook providers. We also got some pointers about how you would like to see HYMS Library provision develop if/when opportunities allow.

Feedback from the sessions indicated that eBooks were really useful and wanted but that access and design continued to be issues:

and, in the case of one example looked at:
oh yes, this is the nightmare one...
Thanks also to all those who expressed an interest in the focus groups but who could not attend the ones scheduled. We hope to offer further Freddy Frog eBook feedback sessions in December/January.
