Library e-readers project

With e-readers such as the Kindle, Sony Reader and ipad becoming more popular we have started to look at how library content can be used with these devices.

Over the summer we asked Nick Loakes, a student in the Department of Information Science to evaluate 5 e-readers. Further work on the suitability of e-readers for use with e-books on reading lists, newspapers and interlibrary loans will be continuing this term. Nick demonstrated his work over the summer in James France Building. We aim to develop Library expertise and to produce a report and a web page of advice early in the New Year.
