Formatted abstract
This literature review describes the experiences of universities in their use of ereaders as textbook replacements and of academic libraries and their lending of ereaders.  Information gained from this review will inform Southern Cross University (SCU) Library’s forthcoming Ereader Project, which will trial the lending of ereaders as leisure reading devices. The trial will help to gain insight to borrowers’ ereader experiences in the Australian academic library context.
