Purpose: E-books are not as popular as other types of e-publications, such as e-journals and e-newspapers. The possible reasons for this could be because the technology for creating/accessing e-books (both hardware and software) is not yet matured, users’ perspectives about e-books need to be changed and the awareness of e-books needs to be raised. The purpose of this study is to investigate the use and usability of e-books from users’ perspectives in an academic and research environment.
