summary This paper reports on research undertaken over the past two years into the provision of e-books in the UK focussing upon the issue of bibliographical access. The problems experienced by library and information staff tracing and locating e-books are elucidated. The current position concerning the extension of legal deposit for this electronic format is considered, and a map of the providers of bibliographical information is set out. The establishment of a national strategy for access to e-books is explored through a discussion of the role of a significant new UK body, the JISC e-Books Working Group. The group has a specific remit covering bibliographic access and the potential impact of this group upon the present model of bibliographic access is also discussed. The paper poses a range of questions designed to encourage further international debate on this aspect of e-book accessibility.
