The Kindles are here!

The library has just obtained four Kindles to lend to students, faculty, and staff.  They should be available for checkout within the next few weeks and we couldn’t be more excited!  And we’d love to know what you want to read on them!

So please let us know in the comments any titles that you’ve been dying to read, or anything (fiction or non-fiction) that you’ve read in the last few years that would make a great addition to our Kindle Library.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

The “Future of…” Conversation Continues Wednesday, 2/15

Future of Books in the Internet Age DiscussionPlease join us for a vibrant discussion of “The Future of Books in the Internet Age.” How will ascent of e-books and the proliferation of tablets and e-readers impact reading, scholarship and pedagogy?  Who are the winners and losers? What are the opportunities for scholars, bookstores, and libraries? These are but a few of the questions that will be considered! The discussion will take place in the Marcus White Living Room at 12:15pm. Invited guests include Jack Dougherty, Associate Professor of Educational Studies at Trinity College and co-editor of the web-book, Writing History in the Digital Age, and State Librarian Kendall Wiggin.

The program is sponsored by the Elihu Burritt Library in conjunction with the Arts & Public Policy Committee, Philosophy Department and Honors Program.
