Getting Started with eBooks: a beginner’s guide

Hi Stephen. This is really handy. I’m still struggling with how best to present this “flowchart” to our patrons, reflecting *our* system and choices without overwhelming them. This is a great help.
Very informative post. These days, when every writer and blogger gets the “put out an E-book” line, it’s easy to think that you can just slap something into a PDF and be done.
I’m not sure that this is accurate. I know that Nook owners can get Google books so that part is not right.
And, of course, the word “library” appears nowhere on the list of where people might obtain (as opposed to buy) ebooks nor where they might seek help. A wonderful guide, but it reinforces the flow of ebook consumerism that bypasses libraries, not that that’s the author’s fault.
Any reason why no one has created a library version??? Is it just easier to complain than to do something about it? I’d be thrilled to point to a library version.
