Hardbound textbooks have many advantages over electronic texts. Hardbound texts do not need batteries, special software, phone lines, or computers. There are never compatibility problems unless the book is in a language that the reader does not understand. Medical reference books also have an exceedingly long shelf life, but they invariably outlive the usefulness of their content. The main advantages of electronic texts are their ability to perform an automated search for keywords and phrases; to link portions of the text to other parts of the book, including references; to access information in dynamic Internet data repositories; and to include video images that augment textual information.
