Considerable attention has been paid to how readers find, triage, navigate and read periodical material such as journal articles. Until recently however, applying these questions to books has been impractical or impossible. This paper reports an exploratory log analysis of ebook usage in an academic library. This study investigates raw usage, document triage practices, and in-book navigation. © 2011 ACM.
