The Application of eBook Technology in Australia

Mike Ottoy.


This workshop takes a look at the development of eBook technology, both hardware and software, and it's application, particularly across the non-consumer markets in Australia.

eBook technology was first introduced into this country about four years ago. Since that time the application of this technology has been tested within a number of industry segments including lending libraries, education, defence, airlines, private enterprise and local government. In this workshop we will be examining some of these applications. We will look at the anticipated benefits alongside the perceived shortcomings of the technology in delivering complete solutions, and will explore the future directions of some of the world's eBook manufacturers.
