I’m a library science student at the Pratt Institute in Manhattan and this summer I’ve gone to London to study e-publishing at the University College of London. What better way to learn than with a bit of my own e-published work? I’m very interested in how readers have changed the way they read as they transition to digital formats. I’ve reviewed a bit of the literature, blogged about the different speakers who came to address my class, and posted my final paper.
The naysayers tell us print is dead and that people don’t read anymore. I beg to disagree, hence the skeletons up on the balcony. Those skeletons reside at the Grant Museum on UCL’s campus, just two blocks away from the 6th Annual Bloomsbury Conference.
