Academic library eBook usage surging

e-Books really are getting popular - if you look at students in academic libraries at least. Don't believe me? Check out these stories about the University of Texas at Dallas:

*E-book use on the rise at University of Texas at Dallas–but keep in mind the caveats
"An increase in total online use of e-books by document from 29 percent of print in 2004 to 58 percent in 2005."

* Report: Academic Library eBook Usage Surging
"... the top-circulating ebook was ‘checked out’ 47 times in a month, and the top print book was 1.4 times."

It's a wave of e-book interest and usefulness that can't be stopped!
