Lunch 'n Learn presentation: When e-books began to appear in the early 2000’s, there was speculation about the demise of the printed book.

Since then, both the library and consumer markets have matured, and despite all predictions and speculations, at Princeton University Library, print books and e-books have continued to co-exist quite nicely. Princeton University Press feels that
