  • Here’s a breakdown of all PDA titles that have been purchased or viewed by LC class. It helps answer a question we have been getting asked: Which content areas show up repeatedly in usage statistics? …May relate to wanting to identify early adopters of ebooks by disciplinary areaWhen we started the pilot, we made some guesses about which departments might use ebooks the most and were glad to see that titles being used fall across all disciplinary areas. For example, we were not surprised to see the highest usage counts in the Social Sciences, but were surprised to find out many more Religion and Philosophy titles have been used than Psychology titles.
