      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 Book Arts Web portal now includes listservs. Also note Peter

      "The Scholarly Electronic Publishing Bibliography (SEPB) is an electronic
      book that currently presents citations for over 1,400 selected
      English-language articles, books, and other printed and electronic sources
      that are useful in understanding scholarly electronic publishing efforts
      on the Internet."

      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
      http://pallus.cic.uiuc.edu/ciclibraries/MtgNotes/NISTebook2000.htm. You
      can also get from there to user surveys. Also check Craig's compendium of
      e-book links on Sunday, October 1 at BookNotes. Lastly note the trade
      publication at, http://www.ebookad.com/radio/

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