    Name:
    Location: Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom

    I am the owner and managing director of Information Automation Limited (IAL), a company that specialises in research, consultancy and training for the information profession. We are particularly interested in all forms of electronic information resources (e-journals, e-books, etc) and I teach a course in electronic publishing at the Department of Information Studies in Aberystwyth. Drilling down still further(!), my interests centre on the quality and evaluation of electronic information, and in the thinking that underpins activities in library and information science.

    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".
