    EPUB 2.1 Charter. The IDPF, which now maintains the international standard for the EPUB format, is working to address many of the problems with the current EPUB specification, including rich accessibility and navigation and support for MathML. (Sue Polanka, 2011).
  • 28. DAISY is the de facto accessible e-book standard. DAISY 3 and EPUB are supposed to “coincide” in EPUB 2.1, which ultimately means there will be an international standard e-book format that can be fully accessible. (Sue Polanka, 2011).
  • 29. XPS is the favored format for K-NFB’s Blio Reader. XPS has a number of structural elements available in the specification, including sections, stories, paragraphs, lists, and tables. However, it is unclear how or if these structural elements will be made available to screen readers in future versions of Blio. (Sue Polanka, 2011).
  • 30. PDF Accessibility from the PDF category on the Adobe Accessibility Blog: If readers are curious about the technical details for PDF accessibility, see the documents listed under the Slides from CSUN 2010 post. Screen readers can read accessible/”tagged” PDF. And if the PDF is well marked up, using headings and other structural elements, it is decently navigable by a screen reader. However, it is not in the same category of accessibility as DAISY. Currently, no screen reader is able to take full advantage of PDF document structure, though many do have basic abilities to navigate well-structured and tagged PDF. (Sue Polanka, 2011).
  • 31. Finally, though we do not generally think of it as a book format, it should be noted that HTML is the most accessible document format available. (Sue Polanka, 2011).

  • 40. Libraries Positives: in the past, libraries have looked within for the metrics that would "prove" their value: numbers of books acquired, cataloged, and circulated; interlibrary loan requests fulfilled; visitors. today, user satisfaction is the measure of our success. the library of the future relies on a plethora of metrics to ascertain the difference that its facility (physical and virtual) makes on the ability of the organization to function like a well-oiled machine and measures the library's contribution to the work that others do based on the information it provides and the efforts of its staff.

  • 41. libraries negatives: many students are embarrassed about not knowing how to use the library and are reluctant to approach the reference desk. the theory of library anxiety offers an explanation, proposing that a fear of being in and using libraries serves as a psychological barrier, hindering many university students from using the library efficiently and effectively.

"libraries will need to focus on e-science, e-research, e-books, web 2.0 & 3.0 and digital preservation. the digital age offers huge opportunities, but the decline of information literacy skills risks robbing a generation of the ability to fully utilize these. libraries and information services must step up to the plate to provide services which meet the needs of the new generation of researchers, and which add value beyond the search engine."
