While looking through some old work I came across this article I wrote after attending the Public Libraries Conference on a sponsored place in 2008.

Can't imagine why.

their choice of e book format (Sony Reader, Kindle, ibok?) may seem very remote
to some. But this was just one of many forward thinking topics at this years
