The increasing the role of technology in libraries has had a significant impact on the changing roles of librarians. New technologies, such as e-books, are dramatically increasing the accessibility of information, and librarians are adapting to the evolving needs of users that emerge from the adoption of these new technologies. Little research has been done in South Africa on the usage amongst librarians and their interactions with these new technologies. Whilst previous research focussed more broadly on the use of search engines and faculty usage of electronic databases, this specific investigation of librarians’ knowledge and use of e-books would provide new insights into academic librarian e-book usage.
