    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.

    New article on e-books

    By way of reporting myself back from working in Ghana, let me report on a new article on e-book aggregators!

    My colleague, Ray Lonsdale and I recently undertook a small piece of research for an article which has just appeared in the April - 7 (4) - edition of CILIP's Library + Information Update. Our aim was to bring together an overview of e-book aggregators - we didn't have the space for a full comparision, so in a 'comparative review' we have highlighted the various strengths and described approaches.

    The article, Aggre-culture: what do e-book aggregators offer, appears on pages 28 - 33...

    And it is clearly my month for being published as I am quoted by Tim Buckley Owen on page 1 of Gazette (Pricing and standards hamper e-book take-up) and a re-hash of my paper from the Talis Conference has appeared in Panlibus: Total Resources are not Standard Resources (p9)!

    Don't forget - to keep up to date with e-book articles, visit my Writings about e-book publishing, 2008, which has a healthy set of titles for so early in the year!
