    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-Book Readers for e-book readers

    If there is anyone with more experience of e-book readers than Ellen Hage, I have yet to find him/her! Look at Ellen's blog, Tech from an E-booker's Viewpoint, and you will find a wealth of information about e-book readers, past and present. She apparently owns over 20! So this is the place to go for comparative views.

    In her latest post, Looking forward to future E-book devices, she discusses Bookeen's new offering, the CyBook 2, due out in September. It will apparently use a Vizplex screen, which is faster than the Sony Reader so readers who find the slow page turns an irritation should be pleased; and like me, Ellen welcomes the Mobipocket compatibility.

    I am trying to locate a copy of Ellen Hage's PhD dissertation from the Capella University of LaVerne, which is on on e-book self-efficacy and usage levels across age and gender. As I have said here before there has not been much in the way of e-book user studies.
