Learn with NSR

The universe of ebooks and econtent continues to expand in every direction imaginable, showing no signs of stopping. It can be daunting for publishers, librarians and educators to keep up with the ever-evolving products, brands, and business models thrown their way by established-players in the publishing and library fields (i.e., the companies that have been around for decades) and brand new players challenging the status quo and redefining what is possible with ebooks and econtent by introducing new approaches and new ways of delivering content to patrons.

NSR tries to keep up with the challenges and possibilities afforded to us through new technologies by publishing articles that bring to the forefront both emerging trends and emerging issues. We also keep up with all the possibilities that bring us closer to a deeper understanding of the potential of ebooks and econtent. If you are looking for a place to start your research on ebooks and everything related to and inspired by them (and want to explore essays and articles available freely online), we suggest you begin with this list compiled by NSR editor Mirela Roncevic.

Please check back often since  we plan to update it weekly with new links as they become available or brought to our attention. The idea here is to build a repository of free sources online that serve to expand our education and can be accessed by anyone, anywhere.
