e-Books Factsheet available
The latest UKeiG Factsheet is now available to members on the UKeiG website. Written by myself and colleague Ray Lonsdale, the factsheet gives a brief history of e-books, a definition, and answers a series of regularly asked questions about the format - how are e-books read? what is the difference between purchase and licensing? what e-book readers are available? what do e-books offer that print books do not? and so on. There is also a list of e-book publishers and aggregators. The Factsheet on e-books is available at http://www.ukeig.org.uk/members/access/factsheets/index.html. A printed version will be available from the UKeiG stand (S100) at the London Book Fair at the beginning of March, at which the authors will give a UKeiG presentation on "Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries".
