"And the first computers were intended for business use… I see Kindle & Nook circulation as two separate things. As I understand it, when you purchase a book for a Kindle, it is housed on the Kindle. If you purchase multiple books on one…"

"Yes, Michelle, I too just got my American Libraries issue and was wondering the same thing. I also just read a post in the Kindles in the Classroom group that now Amazon is limiting libraries to a bulk order of 3 Kindles max. (instead of the former…"

American Libraries article says circulating ereaders full of books is a copyright violation

Has anyone read the article in the American Libraries magazine about Netflix? The author also states that libraries are violating the products terms of service agreement (TOS) by circulating Kindles and other eReaders full of books because they are intended to be for personal use only.http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/columns/practice/read-fine-printSee More

Michelle Burns Jurkiewicz replied to Karen Anderson's discussion Is anyone using the IPAD ?
"I would have to agree. The ipad is very heavy compared to the Kindle. And the Kindle app is just an app that doesn't include the eInk. So it's like reading on a computer screen."

"Tammy, one of the things that I'm encountering with parents is some major resistance to reading on an ereader. Of course some have them and their kids use it, but others hate it. I find it understandable and a shame at the same time. What are…"

"A library friend asked me, is it possible to lock a Kindle or Nook? Say if you wanted to let people download a copy to read, and notice they already have the hardback too. Does anyone have issues with things like that? Taking the digital copy and…"

"Hi Cathernine, I just got a Kindle for my birthday. It's really amazing. I never thought it would look so good, just like a page in a book. As far as a LIBRIS meeting, we're waiting on the fall volunteer to get back to us on a date.…"

Hi Michelle, Thank you for sharing your ideas at our last meeting. As you can see I have already implemented one of them by joining this group. I have been a bit at sea trying to figure out how to incorporate some of the new technology into our program. I'm relieved to be able to discuss this with other librarians.

Michelle - at the bottom of the posts on grant writing - a B&N employee has some pointers about book fairs and donations going to schools. Also she says some stores run grant writing workshops. Maybe we should look into that for some Nook money?

Dear Michele,
I don't think I will make the meeting at Germantown Friends. I am the ONLY librarian at my PK-12 school so I have to pick and choose the meetings. I am trying to decide between the kindle and the i pad. I would like to be able to download free books from public libraries and other sites.
