eBooks and eReaders

Hi all,

 
I have been keeping and eye on  the  implications of  this Boston article for a number of years when Sony Reader and Kindle  started  up.  
 
I think Macquarie University has taken a step by step approach. The new library at  that is being built has no books ( well very few) on shelves for the students.  They are brought up from the depths on a conveyor belt upon request. 
 
Here is a little  little collection of links I have on eBooks and eReaders that I just grabbed from my Delicious:
 
 
 
 
 
In sum –  Australia has  a few online transfer issues before eBooks can become more mainstream in our libraries.  I can envisage in a few years students reading articles and newspapers this way in the Libraries.
cheers  Martin
