This article presents some interesting local findings of this teacher librarian’s ebook program, including a small percentage of students preferring to use the ebook format over print so they can read what they want without fear of social stigmas. In the TL’s words, “Ebooks, I’ve found, are a great equalizer for our students.”
This is an aspect of ebook access that I had not previously considered. Thanks to Christopher Schiemann for sharing these findings from his EBP efforts.
