I do see the distinction between the two in terms of access (one needs an app whilst one is an app) and agree with the present state re. the difference in regard to interactivity (The Book App. Alliance). As a TL I want my students to have rich experience with both print and digital literature. In looking at eBooks and book apps as defined I think access is an issue in regard to apps. Our collection includes eBooks which students read on their individual iPads but how can an app be part if the collection? I can share from my iPad in the library but how can students access it independently?
