Abstract

Based on the form of questionnaire, this paper explores the use of foreign academic e-books by teachers and students in a certain school from a subjective view. 367 Users’ behavior, habits and needs were analyzed. Based on the results of the analysis, four suggestions are put forward to improve the overall utilization: Promote the localization of interface, pay attention to users’ advice while purchasing, improve content disclosure and subject classification, and guide users to have social sharing.
