On eBooks, Users and Libraries

A good, thoughtful post by Carl Grant on the rise of electronic reading, and what it means for users and hence for the libraries that wish to serve them.

Index Data turns 15

[Printable Version]

Copenhagen, Berlin, Gloucestershire (UK), Toronto, Boston, Keene (NH), Chatham (NJ) and West Hartford (CT).

Poor man's screen sharing

Index Data is an international company. There is a small HQ in Copenhagen with 3 developers and the other developers works from their home in England, Germany, Toronto and the northeastern US. [not to mention that many of our customers are also far away from our offices]

Reflections from ALA
