    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.

    Writings about e-book publishing, 2008: update

    There has been a rush of article added to my Writings about e-book publishing, 2008 over the last 5 or 6 weeks. So much so, that it is already approaching the length of last year's page!

    The last item to be added, an article by Laura Dawson in Book Business, comes from a journal newly available in electronic mode (to which you must subscribe, but which looks worth watching). It is doubly interesting as the editorial (by Noelle Skodzinski) quotes Michael Cader, founder of Publishers Marketplace, as saying
    Get your mind-set out of the book business and into the reader business
    ... which has a ghostly echo of my last piece here, A necessary change in reading? Cader added, "Publishers have to leverage the damn book".
