Annotation: Fifteen years since we first heard the term e-book in publishing circles we have more questions than answers. As I look at e-book publishing from the perspective of a director at a medium-sized university press situated in a large, public, research-oriented university, I see many exciting opportunities but no clear roadmap to success. Most university presses have more of a will than a way, although their paths vary by the extent of their staffs and financial resources. Let's look at ten of the prevailing questions that are on the minds of either librarians, customers, or press directors and explore the current state of progress.
