BOOKS: NEWS AND DISCUSSION: Booknews
- Booknews is an archived weblog that extends in its archives back to the
beginning of the year 2000. Additions are made to the weblog on selected
days of each month and include valuable brief news tips, resource listings
with hyperlinks and some very handsome illustrations. The electronic book
scene is, as the website URL would imply, very much a part of the content
of this resource. Conferences and other book related events are
selectively reported on this weblog. Resources useful to researchers will
also be a part of what is found in the notes posted to this source.

The site includes a scholarly electronic publishing weblog.
Chela Metzger at the University of Texas library school preservation
program kindly sent an item by Jerome McGann titled "Literary Scholarship
in the Digital Future". The essay makes many useful points on the
continuity of reading behaviors in the context of digital delivery.
e-Book Zombies and the Mark of Zorro
In a totally new story the futureofthebook projects a counter-view of the
e-book. This post-digital and meandering story is E-Book Obsolescence. Its
not very good, but its on the right page.
NIST/NISO E-BOOK CONFERENCE NOTES:A set of informal notes about the
meeting by Tom Peters of CIC can be found at

e-book links on Sunday, October 1 at BookNotes. Lastly note the trade

I hope that the members of this discussion group will find this ongoing
resource to be a helpful part of their internet knowledge toolkit.
