    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.

    Andrew Marr on curling up with books

    If you didn't read The Guardian on Friday, have a look at Andrew Marr's excellent overview or review of e-book readers. He has been loaned an iRex iLiad for a month and, in spite of - or perhaps because of - his lifelong love of books he can find a place for it in his life. Not, as Bill Gates suggested, to replace paper - although the article suggests he would be pleased to see less paper in his life - but as an appropriate adjunct. The iLiad works well so why not use it when it is convenient - to reduce the load when carting books off on holiday, for example.

    Like all interesting writing on e-books, the full reference can be found at my Writings about e-Book Publishing, which is regularly and continuously updated!
