Harvard’s move is seen as giving a significant boost to the open access movement, which champions free, permanent online access to peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly material.

Read an Ebook Week

I think every activity has a day or week declared in its support. Read an Ebook Week runs from March 2-8, 2008.

EPublishers Weekly provides a list of 30 Benefits of Ebooks in support of this week.

We love pbooks (paper books), and hope that they are never replaced by their electronic grandchildren. Yet ebooks are a worthy companion to their paper elders.
