Why does the SIG publish e-books and not print books?
E-books enable the SIG to publish timely contributions to the field of learner autonomy in an affordable and accessible format. Production and distribution costs are low and money generated through sales can be used to benefit members in other ways. For example, profits enable the SIG to produce, print and distribute newsletters, fund events, and provide travel grants for people otherwise unable to attend SIG events. Please encourage your contacts to purchase our SIG e-books and help us to make the SIG financially sustainable. Click here for more details.
More details can be found here. We welcome your feedback on any of our e-books.
