IKEA’s great little promo video “Experience the power of a bookbook” went viral in September with over 12 million views. It cleverly extols features such as lack of cables, eternal battery life, touch navigation and pages that load in a flash! Absolutely brilliant advertising!
If you’re a fan of the “bookbook”, you’ll be pleased to know that Mohawk Library has lots of them. Interested in the best business ideas? Check out some classic reads in our “Business leaders read this” collection. Want Canadian content? Health Sciences students can easily zero in on titles with a maple leaf symbol on the IAHS bookshelves. For trades and technology students, we have loads of codes too! Big books, small books, fat books, skinny books … if you prefer the simplicity of print, we’ve got it!
