a library of 50- to 100-page electronic books, each of which synthesizes an important research or development topic, authored by a prominent contributor to the field. Morgan and Claypool calls these Lectures and states that they offer unique value to the reader by providing more synthesis, analysis, and depth than typical research journal articles. They are also more modular and dynamic than traditional print or digital handbooks, such as collected volumes and monographs. They are ideal entry points to new areas for researchers, advanced developers, and students.
