    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.

    Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries

    If you have a particular interest in e-books, come along to the free UKeiG session at 10:00 on Monday 6th March in the e-Content Pavillion at the London Book Fair and get a taster for the regular one-day workshops on e-books that the Group holds. This year we have 'Developing and Managing e-Book Collections' meetings in Newcastle (11th April) and in Dublin (12th September). The London Book Fair session - Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries - is presented by Chris Armstrong and Ray Lonsdale and aimed at both publishers and library/information professionals. The session, which is based upon research and training which they have been conducting with the profession over the last 10 years, will introduce a series of key issues facing librarians as they establish and promote e-book collections.
    The London Book Fair runs from Sunday 5th March to Tuesday 7th March at ExCel London. Further details are available from UKeiG will be found on stand S100 near the e-Content Pavillion. 'Issues surrounding the collection of e-books in libraries' is at 10:00 on Monday 6th March, in the eContent Pavillion.
