E-book Opinion

Posted on: April 8, 2011

How many ‘Trinbagonians’ really like to read? When the government announced free education, the demand for books and scholarly material soared. However, technology has made it easier for many perusing higher education to access scholarly material through the internet and the many databases.

Nevertheless, the use of e-books are still having a slow ‘pick up’ in ‘Trinbago’ even though the national library endorses its use. At the same time the American Library Association has constructed a website to make e-book use easier for libraries as some publishers refuse to make their books accessible through this format. Hopefully, ‘Trinbagonians’ will catch on and benefit from this development. Check out the link below that endorses the development of this new website.

I believe overall most Trinbagonians don’t like to read and I guess it is because of the way some of us was brought up. This is a very good idea how the American Library Association has constructed a website to make the use of e-books easier for Libraries.
