The Book is dead; long live the Book.

Nineteen years ago I attended a workshop organised by the British Council in Manchester. A facilitator at the workshop predicted the death of the “book” before the turn of the next century. Two decades on and the “book” still lives, albeit wearing different cloaks, one of which is the “e-cloak”. There is no doubt that e-books, i.e. digital versions of text-based materials, have captured the imagination of our society and impacted on the relationship between library users and information service providers.
