In the digital era, the publication industry talks more about e-books utility across the world. But in the Indian scenario, usage of e-books is predominantly low compared with other developed countries.

This article makes a modest attempt to describe the conceptual framework, advantages, disadvantages, usage, legal issues, access models and licencing pertaining to e-books procurement.
