I’ve set up this group after a few discussions with others – for those who are involved in (or interested in) the library world and information science. I wasn’t really sure what to call it , but hopefully this will do! Really it’s just another way of getting people together and meeting each other.
Hopefully anyone who is involved in this line of work or just interested in it will join in, and then we can share thoughts/experiences/ideas …
I’m just about to embark on the programme and wondered about purchasing an Amazon Kindle.
I’ve asked colleagues at my institution (De Montfort University) about compatability issues with our electronic resources – and the answer that came back was ‘probably better to stick with an iPad‘.
There’s a recent article on e-books at: http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2010/08/31/ebooks
Any views, experiences or advice from the programme team or other students?
