Abstract

Library of Malaysia (NLM) has launched Malaysia’s first Samsung SMART Library at the premise in June 2014 to provide a new interactive and comfortable reading experience for Malaysian, especially children and youth within an enhanced technology enabled library environment. It is the first digital-book reading zone and it has been designed to increase the knowledge accessibility and learning through the use of the latest technology. Over 2,500 e-book titles of various genres in English, Malay Language and Chinese are available at the Reading Zone. In recent years, e-book has been released by publishers. E-books represent a logical step on the timeline of publishing and the evolution of digital collections. Like all Internet-based resources, e-books break down geographic barriers. E-book devices have been designed and manufactured by global companies including Amazon, Apple and Samsung. In 2009 alone, wholesale e-book sales were almost 200% greater than they were in 2008. This shows that the rate of growth of e-books published each year has greatly accelerated in abroad (Kozlowski, 2010).
