(springer.com): eBooks have evolved considerably over the last five years, beyond the more mature, but less dynamic eJournals space. They are now poised at an intersection of library, technology and research trends that afford great opportunities and challenges, for both the library and publisher communities.Similar to the formative years of STM eJournals adoption, eBook uptake shows both promise and challenges: promise as an efficient source for research, and challenges as stakeholders grasp how best to manage this relatively new content format. In their sixth year, eBooks are entering an Age of Experimentation. Stakeholders must learn how to flourish despite the dizzying pace of the technologies that support the eBook format.
